The plated exhaust manifold looks so good!

Thanks! and thanks for the idea :D

 

The plan was to go for electrolytic polishing, but this exhaust is not made of just stainless steel. This was discovered during the process when the welds and the parts that connect to the cylinder head started to rust  O_O

So if anyone is looking for advice, buy the steel manifold and have it plated!
