GT Dual Chrome Exhaust Tips

My gt take off mufflers just came in and I was wondering where to find a pair of chrome tips to put on them to cover up the ugly factory look

I might be wrong but I thought the GT mufflers already had chrome tips. But if not yeah like he said those car part stores usually have some nice ones.

Do tips change the sound? Cause I just want the looks and not change the sound

Re: GT Dual Chrome Exhaust Tips

chrome = rust and looks bad quickly.

I would recommend polishing the tips on there, they are stainless after all. Its easy to polish them up and have them looking good. Double check that they ARE stainless (no coating etc if they have not rusted it should be fine)

Buy wet/dry 3m sandpaper (walmart)

buy 200 gritt, 300 gritt, 400 gritt, 600 gritt, 700 gritt, 800 gritt, 900 gritt, 1000 gritt, 1500 gritt, and 2000 gritt. Finally metal polish.

YOu dont HAVE to buy EVERY step above but the more steps you do the BETTER the shine is when you are finished, smaller steps = BEST results FYI else you end up with Meh results.

Start with wet sanding (spray bottle of water) but do it somewhere you dont mind getting the floor dirty (in the grass works) as the crap that comes off the sand paper is NASTY.

Take your time sand every inch of the tip where you want it to shine up good make sure the scratches are uniform in. Once every where you want is shined on the tip move to the next grade. Before you know it you will be up to 2000 and it will be looking good, finish it up with the polish and post up the results.
