Cleaning up the oe exhaust downpipes

Someone posted on here around a month back or so about polishing their oe stainless exhaust downpipes/headers then another posted that he got them done by media/vapour/bead blasted or such thing and put up a picture of them, I've tried searching for it but have come up with nothing searching on the forum.
Can anyone remember or knows what the process was called or indeed who got the work done?

Not sure about that exact post, but I have had some engine cases vapor blasted for a different bike and the results were amazing. Expensive compared to regular media blasting, but it leaves a very nice burnished surface. A few hours with some scotchbrite and wet sanding produce pretty decent results as well.

Cases, cylinders, head, and valve cover all got the treatment:
