Soap and water-if that doesnt work that means you need to wash more often!! I use wheel and rim cleaner (the kind that removes brake dust) after I've driven for an extended period of time.

Thank you for the suggestions. I actually bought some of the Nev-R-Dul last night. I will try that and the glass cleaner tonight.

The glass cleaner will remove all the deposits from inside the tips, tear a small chunk of NRD, work it a bit, then buff with a soft cloth...they should sparkle. I also do the same on the polished FRPP TB.

Mothers Mag & Aluminum Polish nicely polishes and cleans stainless steel as well as bare aluminum...



Obviously there are lots of choices.

Thats the stuff..
sorry i got the name wrong.

Ive used that product and nothing else.
Its does a great Job. Very easy to use..
BUT!!! i would say you probably should use
some form of wax after using it, just to prolong the oxidation from returning.

I use Mothers products across the board...awesome products! I have been using Mothers chrome polish on my tips but will try the mag and aluminum polish..I have other aluminum parts I would like to try it out on..the Mothers wheel and tire cleaner (spray on and rinse off) is awesome for a quick brake residue remedy and great shine..
