Thread: Polished some AMG exhaust tips

Results 1 to 15 of 15
  1. #1 Default Polished some AMG exhaust tips 
    Top side of the AMG quad exhaust tips as they were delivered. Dried on dirt, some water spots, the very beginning signs of corrosion, and carbon deposits. There are some scratches in the metal that would require a machine polish to correct if they aren't too deep.


    The bottom side. Again, more dried on dirt and carbon deposits as well as some scratches from possibly bottoming out on a steep driveway or the like.


    After a bath in warm soapy water, we attacked the grime and stains with #0000 steel wool. We tried using the steel wool with Blue Magic Liquid Metal Polish first, but found it to be too mild of a combination. The steel wool alone yielded the best results, and will not scratch stainless or chrome.


    After the brushing with steel wool, the tips were all washed in warm soapy water again, then hand polished with a terry cloth pad and Eagle One Nano Polish. We like to use this polish as a final step due to it's extremely mild nature and protective property against future corrosion.


    Next, we applied two treatments of Meguiar's Carnauba Cleaner Wax to add more protection and ensure any residual polish was removed before the next step.


    Finally, three coats of Meguiar's Gold Class Carnauba Plus paste wax were applied. The first coat immediately followed by a second, 30 minutes to dry, then a third coat 30 minutes later without taking off the previous layers. This was let to stand for an hour before buffing off with a microfiber detailing towel.


    The final layer of wax setting up for an hour.


    The end result.


    Shiny!


    Note the carbon deposits are all but gone from the bottom and inside edges of the rolled tips.

    Steel wool is great for stuff like that. Got a dirty windshield? Detail spray and #0000 steel wool and it looks brand new. I do it to all my cars once a year.
