Default Remove burnt plastic from exhaust?

Hey guys,

My bosal catback has some burnt bumper material on the tips (you can't see it under the bumper much, but you see if it you come up really close).

I would like to take that stuff off. Any ideas on how to remove the burnt-on stuff from the tips?

Oleg

I got a really really fine grit sand paper and just went over it lightly. I had a ton though.

I was thinking about that, but I'm afraid I will ruin the polished look of the tips.

The one way I thought of doing this is probably heating up the tips and wiping the stuff off, but I'm not sure if there's an easier way to do it.

Yeah I was gonna suggest taking off the back section, and use a heat gun on it, wipe it, then use some type of chemical to remove the remaining thin layer of plastic.

sand it with sandpaper and then get two different rubbing compounds... one that is more abrasive and one that polishes.
