    After


    Tough work but well worth it. I used 600,800,1000,2000 sand paper with
    water. then scotch brite pads,fine and ultra fine,then used 0000 steel wool.
    Then polished with Mothers Mag and Aluminum cleaner with cotton ball on
    air drill. Tell me what you guys think.

    Looks pretty neat and big improvement. Can't imagine how much work it'll be to get the mirror finish!

    Thanks guys. I am sad to say they are anodized aluminum. They still came out pretty good,but i was hoping for stainless. I think the steel wool helped greatly.

    Great job dude. Thats a really big improvement and improves the overall look of your whole car in my opinion. Just a question, is it a stainless system or an aluminum?
