    Tips for cleaning exhaust

    Was just wondering if anyone had any tips/recommendations for cleaning exhausts as mine is caked on the inside with hard to remove black stuff (excuse my stupidity). What should i use to clean it? metal polish and wire wool?

    Many thanks

    Good effort! My least favourite job but a necessary one. Might be worth putting something protective on the finish to lock it in? This came to mind Britemax FINAL SHINE Metal Polish & Sealant
