Slightly pitted exhaust tips

Question

The polished exhaust tips on my car are slightly pitted on the lower portion of the lip. I used Metal Polish #1 for the first time today but was not able to improve their appearance in that area. While it is not bad and the average person may not notice, I know it's there!

 

Per the instructions on the bottle, it states "For heavily oxidized metal, use an acid-based cleaner first". Any recommendations on an acid-based cleaner that others have had experience with?

 

Thanks!:xfingers:

Use some 00 steel wool to get rid of the pits then use the polish. I did and it came out spankin :thumbsup:

 

Since we normally advise using the least the aggressive method first, I would suggest trying 0000 steel wool first, then moving to the 00 if it is still needed.

With out seeing them I can't say 100%, but I think I would try SOS pads.Then follow up with Adam's MP #1.:thumbsup:

 

Chris, I actually tried to take a couple of up close pics but the shine created byt eh MP #1 gave the auto focus on my camera fits. I guess that is a testimonial in itself. :party

I guess the question I'd have is; what are they made of?

 

Mine are stainless so I start with 800 grit wet/dry paper wet and then move to 2000 grit wet and then polish off with Adams metal cleaner. This isn't something you'd want to do with chrome however.
