Product for burnt exhaust tips

Any new products out there for removing black marks on exhaust tips?

It,s more of a burn mark, not just fumes or deposit.

I use Nevr Dull metal polish wadding and super fine steel wool for the really stuck on stuff. Always been very happy with the results.

Try something like NevrDull, 0000 steel wool, or P21S Polishing Soap. You need something that is mildly abrasive to cut through it and remove the thinnest top layer of metal that is "burnt".

+1 on #0000 steel wool and P21S. Great combo and will take very little time to cut through grime

+1. I do the same. You can use a Dremel with a polish wheel wrapped in the never dull wadding or soaked in the wadding for super tough build up.

Great info here. Thx

I'm eager to see if I can polish most of it out, or if its the finish that's burned through.

I had some that got real bad, I ended up soaking the tips in some Kroil overnight, which worked, smells nasty though. WD-40 overnight might also work. 0000 wool works well, combined with some Mother's.

thanks man. I thought I was hopeless, then I found this thread.

I like your wheels. I'd like to switch mine to something black too. Looks menacing!

Great information in this thread, thanks!

Came across S100 Polishing soap when searching for P21S. Is it similar or not the same?

Personally, I tried Nevr dull and metal polish paste and it didn't worked... Went in the kitchen and grabbed an SOS wool and I was able to remove all the black oxidation. Then I used the Nevr dull and metal polish to do the finishing touches and they look great now. Couldn't be happier. Use plenty of water though...

I have had great luck with the P21S Polishing Soap as well. One suggestion is try just using the sponge rather that the more abrasive steel wool.

I got the same result on my tips with the sponge that came with the P21's. (took a lot of elbow grease though) My 08 had never been done.

What does everyone use as a metal sealer after the polish to keep it easy to clean? Anything in particular?
