The cleanest tailpipes since delivery.

Hey all,

My tailpipes are so disgusting that I finally decide to clean it.

I went to AutoZone & get a bottle of Meguiar's all Metal Polish.

Per instruction, apply some of that white liquid & layer it over the black tailpipe soot. I cut out an old t-shirt which is used to rub against the black soot.

That liquid polisher is amazing. After rubbing the soot stain for about 3 - 5 minutes, the dirty tailpipe is restored back to its old glory.

I like to use the P21S on the non-polished metals. It also doesn't seem to get your hands all black like some of the polishing compounds do, probably because there is water involved which washes the black away. I also use it on my sink and stainless appliances.

I randomly will clean my pipes, used to do it all the time. At some point in ownership I started questioning why do I care what the inside of an exhaust pipe looks like. Most cars after all are dirty in the insides of the pipes. I do care about the outside of them more so and while I can get them looking nice, I do not feel I have the best of methods to deal with them.
