Default Exhaust refinishing shop? (in San Diego)

So I picked up a greddy sp elite for a good price, only catch are there are two scratches on the muffler tips. Just wondering if any junkies know of a muffler shop that can try and refinish it. I'm not even sure if a shop exists but maybe some of you do.

I have the tools to do myself, but would wanna consider a pro first before I try it myself

Thanks

i was just test fitting it, but i do plan on taking off the axleback part and polishing it myself. from how it looks, i may be able to minimize the dings. i just wanted to see if there was a pro that could do anything better about it.

ok maybe im just trippin lol. i think since the exhaust fits good, no leaks, and is everything i was looking for sound-wise, i will just leave it at the "noticing" game. if too many people notice it in person, i'll attempt to re-finish the tips. i'll just keep it on the "to-do" list till then.

i still have sti projectors/ballasts laying around to retrofit and paint my chrome housings lol
