    Quick question to Mr Perfection Detailing........

    what do you use to make those exhausts so clean? I have been using the acid that works on wheels to get brake dust off, but this only works to a point. Is there any stronger stuff out there that wont melt the driveway, but will shine up the exhaust a treat?

    Many Thanks

    From reading a few of PerfectDetailing vs Car threads, I gather that Autosol is used to polish them up.

    I also gather that he only uses environmentally friendly products, so no worries to the drive/passing animals and children!

    But is Autosol strong enough to remove 30000 miles worth of exhaust crud? I am even getting to the point of replacing the rear box because i am so "pinickity"......lol.

    You think you're 'pernickety'... I had to look up the correct spelling for you!

    The only way to know is to try. After all, a couple of containers/tubes of autosol is much cheaper than a new rear box!

    Alright, alright Mr Lamper........so i was being lazy on the spelling checks........lol

    To be honest i am in two minds anyway because i have had the same rear box for 3 years now.......is it time for a change. Its a single ended pipe........and.......well.......i dont know now if it looks right on the M.

    Hmmmmmmmm.

    I have seen WD40 and very fine wire wool used in the past then Autosol to polish.... Worked for me!

    Wire wool, Autosol and some elbow grease should do the trick unless they are really bad, then I use a dremmel power tool

    But certainly not acid

    What negative effect will acid have on the metal? It has had no effect so far.......what have i got to look forward to........my exhaust slowly melting!!! Not really the look i was going for. Lol.

    Autosol...wirewool and a bit of effort. Cool.

    Cheers
