Haha, no chrome mate, thats polished.

Just the original explorer with a decent polish.

Wow. Must have put some elbow greese into that. Did you have to sand back and then autosol?

Hehe, not me mate. Only elbow grease i put into that was removing and re-fitting it and reaching in my wallet $150 later. But yes not an easy job, sand it right back to get all the rough casting out and bring it smooth then polish the lot.
They come up great though. Only difference now is that 5litre plate is polished and theres a polished 70mm t/b an egr spacer now too.

Probably not, but they go brown too, so there wouldn't be any point. I bought a brand new one from Fraud for $110 and it started going brown after about 2 months. :(
