Default how should I clean my exhaust tips?



how the tips look now




how they looked new


so how can I go from the top pic to the bottom pic without destroying the finish on the tips?

I might repaint the muffler...I dunno it's all stainless so it doesn't matter. I need something to do since it's been cold and snowy and I can't put the exhaust on yet

It's the same stuff only rebranded by Eagle. It's like 6 bucks a can, kid simple to use, leave no scratches, and works super. Any auto store sells it either with the car wash stuff or with the exhaust components.

I use a metal cleaner and them apply some RainX liquid wax to it to keep it shiny. The RainX also makes it easier to clean once it re-dirties itself.

Do you use a brush when you apply it? do you scrub hard?
