I wish i had the time and patience to hand polish the entire thing to make it shine like a mirror but i took the short cut, i used Silver high temp paint. Is more to protect the steel welds from rusting.GroceKU - that's a whole lot of bends in the exhaust pipe! ... and it ended up looking SO bright and shiny - is that the paint? No wonder you're "exhausted"!!!
It would have but I used a left and right hand tool to get almost to size then only took very light skims till to size.With the amount of stick out did you get much chatter from the cut-off blade?
With the amount of chemicals and solvents i've breath at all my past jobs this is a walk in the park, but i do take care of myself. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.And get a new paint mask! We really don't want to lose you, even for a short while to recover from paint fumes!
