Default Cleaning Nameless pipes and tips help

Hi Everyone,

I just purchased these axleback deletes. Any tips or suggestions on the best way to clean these pipes and tips? I haven't received them yet these are just some pics from the seller. I should receive them Monday. I appreciate any input!

No joke, aluminum foil and water. Touch up with Never Dull if you feel like actually spending money on it.
Used foil then a little never dull, right side is after 15-20 mins.

That's a nice difference! Thanks for the input.

Got her cleaned up! Appreciate the tips. Ended up going the Never Dull, 0000 steel wool, and Flitz polish method. I could have spent more time on the actual piping, but I wanted to install it tonight. Sounds amazing!

Looks a lot better. I was thinking of taking my exhaust off and getting it ceramic coated and leaving the polished tips alone. It would be a lot easier to clean.

Thanks! Honestly as long as the tips are cleaned you never really see the pipes once they are on. I kind of just went for it because they were off. I think my plan is just to keep the tips looking great so they never get to the same condition they were in when I bought them.

like most peoples answer have beeen, a steel wool pad and some metal shine should get you by, some detail companies sell products specifically for exhaust pipes as well as cleaning tools for it

Do rust spots come back after doing this? Or should this process be done every so often?

Mothers mag and aluminum polish work perfect. Especially if you have one of their power balls or cones to use with it. I always clean up my N1 tip with that.
