    Polished hood shocks, added installed pics

    This is something I have intended to do for a while and after seeing Luis and a few others do it lately it got me motivated again to do mine. I did one tonight and will do the other one tomorrow. Wetsanded with 400 and 1000 grit then finished it off with some Mothers.

    Ya, I polished it, its just the lighting like you said. I took 3 different pics and all 3 were bad pics. Took a little longer to polish than I thought it would though.

    I did mine too, what sucks about it is they are not aluminum and will eventually start to rust. I'm probably going to respray mine gloss black.
