Any one of the best product to use on my sports exhaust tail pipes? I want to keep them gleaming but the black emissions is constantly discolouring them - any tips or products?
 
Autosol and plenty of elbow grease! :)

Shanty - how long does the effect last for?
 
You need to keep on top of it, incorporate a wipe down into your routine wash and any soot comes off very easily, if left for months at a time you'll need to get the autosol out again. In my year of ownership ive probably reapplied\polished twice (but I am a bit of an obsessive washer)
 
Another thumbs up for autosol!
This is a must have in an OCD detailers kit ;)

Another shout for Autosol:











I'm also sad enough to use it on my (chrome) badging too....

Managed to bring mine up with polish but they are not that old



I put the success down to my special polishing suit
 
As I replaced my silencers recently, I had the exhaust tips off and managed to get them cleaned up by the custom exhaust place on their rotary polishing kit.

I then used a combination of WD40 and very fine wire wool to lift the residual rubber/tar/oil marks and finished off the polishing with Autosol and some good old elbow grease. Came up an absolute treat and make a nice difference to the appearance at the back of the car!!

haha its a tight squeeze but not as tight as it looks - well worth the gymnastic feat to get it away from the elements :)
