The smallest details look so good! Polished exhaust with pics

If you are anal about every little detail, like I am, this will probably matter to you! haha

I've had the hardest time cleaning my exhaust tips to my liking so I tried something new today. I'm pleased with the finish and will probably try an even better polish like Adam's Metal polish #1 and #2 next time for a hopefully better result. Check out the finished pics

I used the following:
Meguiars APC to clean it
Speedy Surface Prep Towel to clay it
Meguiars NXT Generation All metal Polish

Never used the Prep towel on it before but it made all the difference to get off the bonded contaminants. This made it worth the $60 I paid for it. Peace!

Thanks! I had a professional detail done a while back and they didn't even look close to this good.

Try our Mercury Metal Polish then. Put it on a polishing pad and polish the entire exhaust canister. Now we are talking!

Looking good!

Done! Send me a PM with price shipped to 76244. I have a Gintani for the E92 and my X5 exhaust that I plan on working on next week. I'll post pics and a review for everyone after.
