Clean the tailpipe

Post08 May 2014 09:37

Hi,

Nothing much to say, tried a couple of things and can't get the tailpipes shiny.
Anyone knows what product to use to get all the dirt off?

Many thanks

Britemax Metal twins, Autosol or Auto Finesse Mercury are all very very good at removing dirt and oxidisation, however, you need some ultra fine steel wool (0000 guage) to give the polishes some bite! The 0000 guage is perfectly fine for metal :thumbup:
Used to have a sexy black Tsi Gt...now im making them shiny for a living!

Worked on it for about 40 minutes...still not perfect. I think I left it too long without cleaning. Have to have another session with something a bit more powerful. Some parts on the bottom just not cleaning off...

Would machine cleaning the pipes work with the metal polish? Anyone tried this before ?

I've used a dremel with polishing attachment with autosol. It works but it did spray everywhere. I prefer using 0000 gauge wire wool and smear polish over the wool before rubbing :thumbup:
