Those double barrel shotgun end cans do look good on a db4....wise move....almost 7 months since anyone posted in this section....but...unlike fb...it can be revisited and viewed always...


I gave the mufflers a bit of a rub down with some soapy steel wool pads to see how they'd come up. They had a few scratches on them that were a bit unsightly.... they came up pretty good, the scratches can still be seen but they're not as noticeable now


Are you talking about "brillo pads"?...that have pink powdery soap built in?....look nice....did it take off the anodising finish....and did you just rub down in direction around the cans...?...Been meaning to do my Db4 end cans but never touched the anodised surface on the frames or end cans...for fear of "the Unknown"....


Yep thatís them... I didnít know what to use and they were at hand so thought Iíd try them. The aluminium finish on the mufflers was pretty dull anyway, so I figured I didnít have much to lose. Yes, I only rubbed around the cans and was careful not to rub along the cans. I didnít want to polish them as wanted to keep that brushed look.

Bike looks great , you obviously been busy with the polish Very Happy , almost like they have some sort of picture efect on them to make them SHINE .
Very professional.


Thanks Stu, no polish, but um yeah, I may have fiddled with the photos a touch, just with the editing settings on my iPhone, donít really know what Iím doing, but it did seem to make the photos look a bit more vibrant
