Re: Polished IRS catback

Well...considering my car is up on jack stands and I was on my back under it for over 2 hours the other night with a sponge and clay bar....yes lol.

It does look alot better now though.

Mine will be seeing similar treatment now that I have the beater to drive...will be claying the wheels, specially the back sides, and cleaning the underside real well and getting it sealed up nice to prevent any future rust and clear up a couple of surface rust areas I have where the subframes were welded on.

Contemplating this polishing process while I'm down there as well when I yank the IRS out for the bushing swaps this fall.

Re: Polished IRS catback

Actually, I plan on doing this this fall as well when the blower comes off for replacement or port upgrading.

Relocating the stuff that is bolted to the side of the blower. - SVTPerformance
