    Loudmouth install

    Ok, we've all seen the SLP Loudmouth.


    I thought some of that system will be seen, so I busted out the polishing supplies


    putting a little shine on the pipes


    buff with some old polish, similar to "never dull" brand


    didn't waste time at the hump




    ok these two are showing the final buff




    so after FINALLY storing the Christmas decorations back into the attic, I have garage space to get this done


    hmm, this skanky looking/sounding system needs to go


    ahh, Yes, anyone want a Z28 exhaust?


    dry run, everything is still loose


    looks better than that rusty system


    dimmer lighting. . . . I'm not going to be cleaning the exhaust pipes, I just wanted some shine for the photo shoot


    and I LOVE the sound. . . for now. . . . . still have the header/dual option for later. . . .for now, the Loudmouth is a deeper tone than I had expected, I like it alot!!! The short test drive seemed a tad more power, freeeeeer flowing

    It has a big wing!

    Awesome job man... I really like the difference your effort made!

    Would you mind going into a little more detail about the polishing process you did? When to use the buffer,what compounds?

    I'm sure alot of us with nasty looking tips (like me!) would appreciate any tips you have.

    Again,nice work!

    thanks!!

    1st = worked the rough spots with files then hard india stones before

    2nd = red scoth bright pads, by hand or drill, just have to be careful with drill get even looking surface finish.

    3rd = the 4" cotton buffing wheel on the angle grinder with green rouge

    4th = cotton buffing wheel with white (finer grade) rouge

    5th = hand polish with metal polish

    6th = re-buff by hand with metal polish

    cleaned throughly between steps, it's a messy process, cotton buffing wheel disinigrates, polish dust flys everywhere unless you have a dust collection system, maybe a shop vac, but I just swept up the mess.

    for tips that have just oxidized only, I'd skip to step 4, or maybe even step 5

    yea, tires don't seem to last very long at Lime's throttle pressure. LOL

    probably just rotate the fronts to the back an install a couple of those new ones one the front.

    also a pair of Michelin Pilot Power 2ct's sitting there for the Ninja.
    The 9th set of tires for that bike. I get about 5k miles out of the Ninja, then the threads are showing.

    I remember when I had my 2001 Ram Air T/A, 8 months was all I'd get out of the rear tires. . .
    I've achieved a little better with the Z28. . .LOL . . .

    too much fun!!!

    Nice job man, it's amazing how that rouge works. I use it on my work truck. What size wheel/tire are you running (sorry to get off topic) I just purchased a "new" "loudmouth" system, guess I'm gonna have to polish it!

    NICE!!! The way the cross pipe looks makes the car look like you have a remote-mount turbo under it. Nice and shiny.

    Is there any way to stop the stainless pipes from turning blue/yellow from heat? In just a couple of hundred miles, the mid-pipe on my Magnaflow catback as totally changed color.

    No can do... our car was made to drive. I am working on getting the underbody to look more like your car though. Check out Post #24: Bidding my rear adieu! I really wish I could find a paint to match that strange hue for a little touch up.
