So here we go, I placed an order to Dan at clearimageauto, for a 2.5 mandrel bent stainless exhaust with sportman XL mufflers with BK tips.
Being a tight ass, I told myself I could polish it myself. I talk to 65imp a fellow forum member who has done this successfully on his 96 imp. If you haven't seen it you need to check it out. I went to the library and check for some books and talked to a couple of maintenance coworkers about stainless and compounds and buffer/polishers. They gave me the run down about the motor size and RPM's on the polisher and the different compounds.
I have some pics here to show a the work in detail more to come in the next couple of days.......
Straight out of the box putting the pieces together to see what it looks like.
This polisher I purchased from Sears, that 65imp (Henry)
turn me on to.
It comes with two polishing pads, four washer and locknut's.
Of course Sears didn't have the stand, so I had to emphasize using a speaker stand for the time being to get the polisher high enough to get some pipe around the polisher.
These are the only compounds that Sears had at the time. No wonder they are going out of business across the country.
After two days of looking for some bigger compounds I came across these at a brake and wheel auto parts store that sell a lot of compounds and waxes.
Here is another pic I took today with all of the pieces together.
This was a practice piece I started with to get my skills down.
My first piece it took me about 5 hours to do this LOL!!!! Just trying to get it right.
Any of you fellas have input or advice let me know.
