Just about any metal polish for chrome will work.

Just get the road grime and carbon build up off of it before you polish it.


Pick your poison.

000 Steel wool dry or with turtle wax chrome polish. Wipe/buff after with a dry microfiber rag.
That's the trick we used when I was a motor officer on a Harley Davidson.
You can still use it when they're hot if you've just parked at a show, just watch your fingers

Mother's Aluminum polish if they're not too dirty......if they are really filthy, use Coca Cola and aluminum foil first to scrub them clean. Yes, I know it sounds weird, but it works!

Have been using Nevr-Dull for over 20 years................on stainless steel. If they are chrome I'd use Mothers Chrome polish...............just clean them good and make sure they are not too hot to touch.

Keeping your Exhaust Tips clean. Advice?

I wet sanded my entire mufflers and tips with 600, 800, 1000, 1500, 2000 then polished with mothers mag and wheel polish and it worked amazing. These were used before I did this. As long as it's stainless you can sand and polish. This would apply to any stainless tips, if they are dis colored and covered in junk and road grime you can start out with like 800 and go up from there then hit it with the polish and they are like new.

I assume you have a buffing wheel? Doing that by hand must have taken a few hours!

Use a mother's drill attachment and good polish and that will shine them back up

I use Mother's Aluminum Polish on stainless all the time. Works great and isn't too abrasive. It will clean off pretty significant road grime but, it's better to wash it first with dish soap/water or windex if it's really grimy.
