Muffler tips polish DIY

Postby Kirkland91 » Fri Jul 15, 2011 2:48 pm

Hello everyone,

Since my car is pretty stock and I have no intentions to upgrade/install anything, here is a write up how to kill some time and clean your stock muffler tips:

For this DIY I have used :3M Scotch-Brite Heavy-Duty Scrub Sponge $3 and Bar Keeper's Friend 10046 Cleanser and Polish $5

The directions are straight forward:
1. On wet sponge (yellow side) put some powder and rub until it shines.
2. Rinse after the desired effect is reached
NOTE: Using the green side of the sponge will leave some micro scratch marks

Nice turnout. I usually use the extra fine steel wool you can get from home depot/lowes followed by any type of aluminum polish for protecting it I'm gona have to try this method though and see which one I like more.
