Exhaust extension

Since y'all are detailin' the heck outa your Odysseys, why not detail that exhaust extension? At first, I thought I wanted one of those fat "rice burner" extensions, but when I noticed that the stock extension is a perfectly good piece of 300 series stainless, I decided to try to polish it. Once polished, it will stay bright and add an element of "newness" to the van. It really makes little sense to add a big bore extension, since the factory, in their wisdom, necked the 2 3/8" pipe down to 2" right before the extension. I guess one could cut the pipe off up where it is still 2 3/8" and gain a little flow. Anyway, I have no special equipment, so I used good ol' sandpaper, starting with 400 grit and ending with 1500 grit. It is not the mirror finish one gets with factory items, but it is darn close. It takes a lot of elbow grease to get rid of the lines caused when the pipe was extruded, but, it can be done. Too bad the whole system is not 300 (non-magnetic) stainless.

....and to think I just replaced the tip because I didn't like the way the oval looked like it was "stepped on". I replaced it beginning from after the "rear axle" with a long chrome piece from a truck exhaust resembling the look of the older mustang 5.0 style. I didn't go for the fart pipe size, just the same size. Looks much better. I'll see if I can find a pic to post......
