We bought the 6" buffer from Harbor Freight for $32 http://www.harborfreight.com/6-inch-buffer-94393.html and a sand blasting cabinet from my brothers lawnmower shop. We have been using crushed walnuts but if anyone has used anything that almost polishes better than walnuts let me know.

The pipes we took off the bike were in bad shape. The muffler is rusted out and the heat shield is broken and rusted. At the moment I am having a local muffler shop try to match the original headers out of stainless pipe. Then I can buy two slim mufflers. I still want to run them high.(because that looks bada$$)
