Cleaned exhaust and polished several times, 2 hours
took apart rear assembly and polished pulleys, 2 speed, ball joints, dogbones, ball cups, anything alloy, 3 hours
Repeat above step for front assembly
Repeat for radio tray
Clean and polished chassis
And then i raced it the next day and got it all messy

Heres the end results, the dark photo shows how reflective the pipe was after i was done with it, i was ready to shoot people who were touching it at the track
that pipe works well with the OSTz l ran the same pipe and motor on the weekend

::TEAM SRGS::, i prefer the skyline vr12 pipe, better overall but this one works great with most engines.

Black_Widow, its called kneadit, its a two part putty that is supposed to harden to the strength of steel, nearly every car ive seen has it on it.

Geez thats a lot of polish time. What product were you using to polish. Also the skyline pipes come stock with probably one of the highest shines ive ever seen. But if you want to bring that shine back , look into mothers mag polish. $12 dollar little bottle that works wonders at making an ultra shine.

With normally hard stuff I use mothers aluminum polish to start , this is more harsh one that removes good scratches and imperfections. Then I move to the mag. I can get my pipe polished in maybe about 5 minutes. With a rag.

Look into it , cause 2 hours of polishing I would be dying.

i also use that kind of stuff on my pipe and it does a great job of not letting the stinger deform after a crash. what is use is EPOXY STEEL CLAY. it's like a 2 part putty. the outer part is light gray color and the inner part is almost black. you just have to squeeze it until the 2 parts become one, mold it to the stinger wait 5 minutes and it's all done. it takes about 24 for complete curing though once cured, it's very hard and can stand up to the crashes...

Thanks guys.

Paint job is done by Dean Isaacs. He can do a custom paint job for you too!
Just give him your favorite colors a description of what you want and he will definitely give you more than you ask for. Just don't ask him to paint you my scheme, 'cause he won't... Once you settle on a paint job, just tell him you want it to be YOUR paint job and he'll reserve it for you, painting it on what ever you want. He also has a 2 week turn around, but will usually have it to you sooner.

PM me for his info.
