    What to use to remove tail-pipe grime?

    my exhaust pipes are literally black and when i clean my car, the normal shampoo is no good at giving it the chrome finsih back.

    does anyone know what to use to make them shine?

    thanks

    pretty sure that something like "Autoglym Tar Remover" will do the job too... just test it on a small out-of sight spot first in case it takes off the shine of the exhast.... probably no worse than wire wool will do so though!!

    I don't know who recommended it (detailing forum )but valve grinding paste does a marvelous job on the hardened carbon build up on the inside of the pipe.
