The tip of my banks exhaust that is. Has anybody else had this problem with the tip getting a little funky looking. What kind of polish can i use to fix this? Sorry the pics arent that great. Looks like it needs some kind of a compound or heavy polish.
???????

Before I dumped my exhaust, I had the Flowmaster catback and the same thing happened to the tips. The best thing I found for it was the Turtle Wax Chrome Polish. It seems to have a very light abrasive in it that took everything off of chrome for me with little effort...

A non-abrasive chrome polish should help you out. Though it looks like it turned color from heat. I'm not sure how easy it is to get that discoloration out without marring the surface of the chrome.

Not really worried about the discoloration from the heat on the rolled edge. just yuck on the inside really.

:rofl: Nice tag, btw.
Thanks man.
Posted something similar on my facebook the other day

It all started with just the tip, then more and more and more till uh oh! Now I know what your thinking and no this is not about sex. I was looking at my truck admiring its beatuy when I decided I need to polish the exhaust tip. Then I decide I should foam the tires and wipe the wheels. After that I was full blow into it, washing and polishing. About an hour later..... Finished and it looks fantasic. I love my truck!

My Banks tip did the same thing.

Chrome polish works very well. I took engine brite to it first and let it soak for a minute and then washed it off with Dawn soap to take off the residue.

Then the chrome polish.

Just be careful, I heard you can get tennis elbow if you spend too much time polishing the tip. Someone once told me you could go blind as well. Don't say I didn't warn you!

I have a similar issue with my set up. Mostly on the passenger side tip. I am assuming because it is more of a straight shot it works more. For me it looks like carbon build up.The several chrome polishes I have tried (mothers/turtle/etc) didn't do much. I wish I had payed more attention in science class. There has to be a simple chemical that will disolve the carbon without harming the metal. I could start a thread "I have two tips and they are turning black" but that would be a bit scarry for some. Tip envy can be a difficult issue.
