Yeah I can agree with you there. If he thought ahead he may have drilled it out enough to leave the space that he estimated the chrome would take up.
oh or I guess you mean after. yeah you could. I woudnet..want to. But thats probly because im paranoid and i would look at the chrome as a nice armor shell..if you allow a place for moisture to seep in, eventually it will/could rust since the metal under was prepped to be coated with chrome not be subjected to the elements.
In reality I realise that is probably overthinking it a bit it probly woudnet matter much
It really looks like Nickel plating to me, I highly doubt it was hand polished, I have a lot of experience in restoring and detailing cars and I polish my exhaust and it does not look like that and I have spent a heap of time and energy on this. My Indycar has nickel plated suspension and it has a slightly gold appearence to it. Not that it really matters but I doubt it was done by hand
This is just an exhaust pipe right???
Some people have waaaaaay too much money, and waaaaay too much time on their hands! I barely have enough time to polish my knob anymore.
I got the exhaust on my 400ex looking very similar.. lost 9 fingerprints and went through over $100 in materials. Why you ask? cuz I could. .. kinda wish I hadn't, cus ever time I took it out it took me a hour to get it looking right afterward. Not counting how long it took to wash the machine down.
