Default polished headers

just picked up the Street Triple R, has a full Arrow exhaust but headers were looking pretty shit so i polished them up.

used wet'n'dry sandpaper with water first, 240, then 360, then 800, then finally 1500 & finished off with a clean rag & some Autosol metal polish, turned out a nice polished silver then after starting up the heat cycle caused them to go a gold colour, took afew hours & afew beers, much better then what i started with though i reckon
