    I use metal polish with an angle grinder and polishing wheel,turns out very nice and even gets rid of alot of the blueing.

    Have stainless tips which get water stained after one day in water. I use a dremel with a polish pad/drill same and some stainless/crome polish. Brand new every time. 4-0 steel wool and polish works good to but so does carpal tunnel.

    Spray the exhaust tips with vinegar and let sit for 5 mins then wipe clean and rinse. Tips look brand new every time. No elbow grease.
