Exhaust tip polishing

Post by wreeve »

Wow. Cleaned the car at the weekend and thought, wonder if those tailpipes are meant to be shiny! A quick google revealed this stuff is what you need to use (Amazon delivered the next day) and wow; from black - to polished in about 10 mins of effort. Amazing, for once the internet is correct!

Looks great! Well done.

Hopefully shouldn't be hard to keep that way. When I got my PZ back box I did the whole lot, took a bit longer mind

I find this stuff is better than Autosol on exhaust tips
https://surfcitygarage.com/products/kil ... tal-polish
the trick is to apply quite thick and leave for a minute before buffing off.



Aston @ Essex Rotary does Surf City Garage products but I didn't see this one listed in his shop
