Is there anyway to polish my factory pipe to make it look like chrome or nickle. And what about the header, Any painting or polishing tricks there.

Throw it at a buffing wheel and polish it up, it will become chrome like.

I tried the buffer tonight, I wasnt working out so well. Maybe if I had a better machine. It was looking chromish but with what I had it would have taken forever. So I used some sand paper. grit, 80, 180, 400. I came out pretty nice. It wasnt a mirror finish but still nice. I forgot to take my camera to the garage so no pic but I will post one later.
