Stainless Steel Exhaust - Stained?? [Supersprint Race]

Somehow managed to stain my stainless steel exhaust tips when I wash washing the car??

It was a little bit warm still the car & weather. Although I thought it'd cooled down already under the shade. Only drove it for like 5 minutes moving it under the cover to wash the car!

Anyway, as I washed, some shampoo and water ran down the tips and somehow it dried up and left these white marks on it and I can't wash it off or polish it off using the usual Autosol metal polish.

Is it fucked now? Sad face.

Agreed! Great stuff!

Can be used in conjuntion with some fine wire wool for harder baked on stuff (not that you should need it instance).

Impossible. If its not worked you.mite need to call supersprint and ask why there exhaust isnt up to a good quality as autosol has sorted much worse things than that for me.

Yeah I tried polishing it for ages and I mean, I've been using autosol for 8 years now?

But this time it wouldn't budge for the first time.

Go down the gym,

Work on your biceps, then try autosol again :-)

Autosol took 10 years off my granny when she scrubbed her face with it - will defo sort that stain out !!
