Hello,
Is there something to shine these up with?
I have wiped around on them but as yet have not put any type of stainless steel cleaner or otherwise on them.
Have a great weekend.

Honesty, I don't even remember what brand of polish I have. It is in a red bottle and works well.

Blue Magic polish. You can get on Amazon. Then use a cone shaped 2” x 2.5” polishing buff bob from harbor freight. Goes on your drill. Mirror finish.

I have used copper "brillo" pads and Simple Green to keep them perfect for three years. The copper is a soft metal (no scratches) and Simple Green works like a charm. Pads are about $1.50 on Amazon.

It comes out of the bottle white and sort of like paste. I use a shop towel to apply and go in as far as I can. The tips shine up very nicely. It will also repel some of the exhaust from making the tips dull again. I generally think it lasts about 3 to 4 weeks before you need to do it again.

I use coke/dr. pepper, whatever and reynolds wrap, than polish. It works great, w/out any scarring.

Hello DrLove, I always use cleaning and non scratch cleaning scrub sponge with a mall amount of Comet or Ajax. Then make sure you completely remove all Comet or Ajax residue with a soft spunge. Once dry polish with FLITZ Chrome Polish. It comes in a tube. I have over 33,000 miles and the pipe ends look like new! Hope this helps.

Wow, sounds like that really lasts. Thank you.

I used Borla polish and a Mother’s cone. Then ceramic coated them. They wipe clean with a damp rag 3 years later.
