Love the blue LED lighting and the exhaust tips are wicked.

I would guess brasso would work well, once again, not likely to last long.

Not really work on the boat but I spent a couple hours in 40 degree weather and snow flurries putting in the dock and lifts yesterday afternoon. We were in dry suites and I swear being in the water was warmer than being on land. Now all we need is some warmer weather so we can move the boats out of storage and on to the lifts.

How long did it take you? Did you get a howl at higher speeds or in turns afterwords?
