Anyone in town refinish exhausts?

Does anyone know of somewhere in town that can refinish an exhaust if I choose to go that route. I was able to pick up a really nice Larini setup but the finish on the muffler and piping are a little bad. Larini has a lifetime warranty on their finish i believe but it only applies to the original owner so i'm out on that. I figure if I put it on the car I may have it refinished somehow. Thanks in advance. Oh and if you know of one any estimate on what the pricing may be?

I'm assuming it's stainless?

Do you have any pictures of what it looks likes (I'm familiar with the design but want to see how bad of shape it's in). I'm not a professional polisher (however I do detail several high end cars in this area) but it's not just horrible I might be able to fix you up.

Here it is:




May just end up wrapping the piping but just checking to see what options were available to me.

The tips and canister should polish out nicely. I've got some stuff that can take the "blue" off but it's just going to come back one it gets hot again. I'm going to be out of pocket this weekend but could more then likely do it next weekend if you want to go that route.

That's cool the guy just shipped it today from seattle so it wont be here for the weekend anyway. I'm gonna let Jeremy take a look at it as well and see if he want's to fab up something to maybe start selling.

We have a polisher so let me know how it turns out and if you need any help with it, when it comes to polishing its hard to give a estimate because it depends on the prep work and how the material polishes out, its easier to ask how many hours do you want us to work on it lol.

Some black chrome powder coat on it would make it look really nice.

Even black undercoating would look good for that matter.

Have you tried spraying it with PB Blaster and just letting it sit on there? When I removed the stock header from my Altima, the areas that were sprayed actually turned back into iron. Good stuff.
