    Exclamation exhuast cleaning tips anyone?

    i dont know if this is the right place to post, but does anyone have some exhaust cleaning/polishing tips? i just got this killer deal on a greddy sp2 for 140 bucks. the only thing is it is very heavily tarnished, dirty, and discolored. i want to get that stainless shiny look again. i started by using some noxon polish.

    its definatly better, but this stuff doesnt seems to be enough. so any tips on what you guys use to clean your exhaust? chemicals, rags, sponge, scrubber of some sort? all opinions welcome.

    thanks,

    -nick

    mothers metal polish is great stuff for the polished bits (tip and can), probably work pretty good on the pipes too. not a whole lot beats two working arms and a scotch bite pad for cleaning up tarished metal though

    +1 for Mother's Metal Polish.

    Also try NevR Dull metal reconditioner. Made by Turtle Wax I think? I've used it on my exhaust many times and it looks brand new afterwards.

    I use griots stainless steel cleaner (liquid based aerosol)
    and griots metal polish (paste-like polish).

    It does a good job but I've never had huge amounts of grime to contend with.

    Oops, my bad. NevrDull is made by Eagle One, not Turtle Wax.

    Link.

    my ScoobySport muffler was six years old and looking shabby- I used Flitz metal polish and 0000 steel wool (and lots and lots of elbow grease)- I was amazed when I was done, six year old muffler looked almost new
