Q: Cleaning exhaust tips?
 
What does everyone use to clean the stainless steel tips on the exhaust?

Thanks.

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.

I use PEEK metal polish.

Glass Cleaner & then a shot of NEV-R-Dul...buff it out to a brilliant shine.

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...

There's always more than one way to skin a cat... :wink:

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.

Adams Metal Polish is amazing stuff too!

Too late to get in on this? What an awesome offer!

SCMcQueen 07-18-2012 05:25 PM

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..
