Default polishing Titanium

I've got an S202 exhaust, and It's got some marring or something on it. What should I use as a cleaner for the Titanium?

Look what google found. Sounds pretty easy and you should have most of that stuff at your house.

Go get a can of mothers metal polish...it's the best stuff on the face of the earth. I've used it on alum, titanium, chrome...everything. It works awesome. If your real lazy like me buy a mothers powercone and attach it to a cordless drill. It cuts the polishing time in half at least.

Wenol will work great for polishing your exhaust tip.It's a much more professional product than mother's retail products,Youll get a more brighter,cleaner look and longer lasting than any other product.http://cliecarcare.com/

Actually I used some Brasso (reccomeneded by a guy with an S202 exhaust in the Rare Parts Thread), and it worked pretty well. I've still got this wierd staining, but I don't want to polish it too far because I don't want a shiney luster, I want to keep the matte finish of the bare Ti02.

The Brasso removed some of the problem areas and it's good enough for me. I think over time it will remove a good 50 percent of the staining. I keep it cleaned with WD40 (Motorcycle trick).

DO NOT use mothers aluminum polish! It has abrasives in it that will marr the titanium and will make it look hazy. Use a clay bar to clean it and a chrome specific polish to bring out the shine. I have an hks ti exhaust and it works perfect every time
