i just washed my car today, and i notice that my exhaust pipes have, what seems to be, scruff marks. i'm not sure exactly what they are, but i did wash them with soap, and when i cleaned them there were marks left over.

i need recommendations on how to clean the exhaust tips correctly...is there a certain product i should clean it with?

i need to get rid of the sruff marks too, what kind of polish do you guys use for the tips?

What do you use to apply something like this? Do you just wipe it on with a cloth?

stuff works awesome!

apply it with the "cotton" inside in circular motions, let it haze over. get a cloth and rub off in a back and forward motion (like when you're polishing your shoes).

we used something similar to this in the air force during BMT to polish the chrome on the floor.

Sorry, but I cannot figure out what "this stuff" is. Can anyone help, please?
Thanks.

Try Wenol Blue and a microfiber polishing cloth.

Make sure all of the dirt is off the tip before you start to polish.

Please tell me your kidding on the steel wool? You will have him scratch the #$%$#@% out of them.

I use #0000 steel wool with Klass AIO all the time on exhaust tips with carbon buildup...so long as you're not using what people typically think of as steel wool and you're using #0000 it's very effective and safe.

you can also use super fine steel wool on chrome wheels and they come out mirror like

I thought the tips are a brushed aluminum no? Aluminum polish works great for me!

NO #00 will scratch the tips. You need #0000
