Anybody have any luck cleaning burnt exaust tips?
I'd like to know this too, the tips on my grand prix GT2 are pretty black
On my car it seems like a build up of some sort. I have been thinking of trying a metal polish with a polishing pad on a dremel tool.
The trim on my car is polished stainless steel but I'm not sure if the Exhaust Tips are SS or not. I don't really know what type of polish to try.
I use something called Brasso. You guys might have it around the house and it works wonders on my exhaust.
To get them clean, from suit, and other oily exaust debris, try useing Eagle1 A2Z wheel cleaner. Spray a bit on, agitate it with a brush. Spray clean with your hose. Just make sure you dont get it on the paint.
If you have discoleration of the metal itself. Theres not much you can do about that. Its all the way through the metal from heat cycling.
on the exhaust of my bike where it builds up nice and black i'll use some grease lighting
on the inside: rubbing compound and a brush
on the outside: something less abrassive, like Brasso, should work.
fine steel wool works great on non polished exhaust. I do my lightning tips with it a couple times a year. Cleans them up perfectly.
I to have used Greazed Lightening Orange Blast on them, seems to work preaty good. But it can leave smudges on polished tips, and some of the more baked on stuff it wont touch.
