Exhaust Tip Cleaning

HI

Was looking at getting the exhaust tips cleaned and had a couple of questions on which products to use.

Was originally thinking to use Autosol and once nice and clean seal it with some sealer. I have noticed some people recommending poorboys wheel sealant and also FK1000P. Has anyone tried these as if poorboys works saves my buying a new wax as don't have FK1000P.

The other option is using Britemax metal twins and does anyone know do you need to add a sealant like FK1000P or will the second coat of Britemax give it that protection?.

I have always used Autosol, never really bothered with a sealant as it seams to repel water quite well without the need to seal.

Autosol for me too, I have tried sealing with various items but none have ever lasted, most likely due to the crazy heat exhausts reaxh, found cleaning keeping on top of it every week was the best solution
