Exhaust tip cleaning.

First time i`ve had twin smokers and they are not in good condition.

I`ve tried a wheel cleaner, tardis and then Autosol and they havent improved much.
I have limited access due to how close they are to the bumper so cant machine polish, not sure what to try next

Did you try autosol with 0000 grade wire wool? If not then try that, I've bought back some pretty bad tips with that combination.

ULtra fine wire wool in conjunction with the Autosol and elbow greaseusually does wonders on exhaust that I have detailed cars on and some have been very manky as well.SJ.

You don't need to wet it. I've always found using a washing up sponge (with the green rough side) first gets a lot of crud off then polish up with the wire wool/autosol

Stainless steel sink cleaner from Asda has always done the job for me

As said above autosol and 0000 wirewool works wonders, I usually finish off with Meguires metal polish on a microfibre!

Does the 0000 wire wool damage the chrome finish?
