Default Cleaning Exhaust Tips

My factory exhaust tips are looking mighty blackened... What's a good way to polish them back up?

Mothers Aluminum Polish works good for me..My tips need constant cleaning.

The Mothers comes in a small jar that you apply with a towel.

Mothers or Griots. Some very fine steel wool with water first can pull all the old crap off of the tips and follow up with the metal polish. Good luck.

I think Meguiars might have a certain product as well, if you search, sorry for being vague.

I use this Eagle One stuff that comes in an aluminum tin. It's like wadded cotton with some grit in it and some chemicals. I just wipe it down with that, then polish it up with a rag and it looks great.

I just took 2 years of black build up off of my muffler tips with the Mothers Aluminum Mag polish in about 5 minutes. The stuff works like magic on stainless steel. What a difference.
