    I bought a header for my 95 integra. It was for a DA, but it was a brand name, Greddy for 100 bucks. Drove around with it only prob is that it look like shit. So took it off and decided to sand it down, first time I did some thing like that so it came out decent.
    Ha now I can probley sell it for 125 bucks and turn a profit lol

    Here is the before, shitty brown (cant see the greddy stamp)

    you should have gotten a metal polishing kit. you might have been able to clean it up even more. looks better though.

    Yeah, ideally get some metal polish and a drill buffer. I helped a kid polish some fat-5's the same way and a drill polisher makes things go 500x faster.

    it's a header!
    why go through the trouble?
    might as well get it chromed if you want the shiny look.

    it will get dirty fast.
