Chrome exhaust cleaning
« on: Sep 12, 2017, 22:19:21 »
I have been using every available method I can find to clean this set of chrome pipes. I assume the stains are 2 stroke gearbox oil baked onto the chrome. The clean up of dirt, grime and rust has not been to hard to do, these stains are stubborn though.
And ideas would be appreciated.
I have tried chrome cleaner, glass cleaner, aluminium foil, steel wool, metal polish and CLR clear so far.

Pick up some Quick-glo, I promise you wonít be sorry.  That stuff works like a charm!

Oven cleaner you say? Might even have some of that in the house.

You can try scratch and swirl remover, the stuff harley davidson sells works quite well.

The thing about the quick glo is that it has a wax in it that helps form a protective thin coat.  Just something to consider.

Best stuff for oil that's been burned on. Let it sit for a minute or two and that stuff will wipe off. Won't damage the chrome.

If you do use oven cleaner I would spray it on a rag not directly on the pipes. You could get over spray and you donít want it sitting on the aluminum block too long. It can cause pitting.
