Having tried numerous types of metal polish products, none of which I will mention because I'm sure they work well under the right conditions, I finally discovered Purple. http://www.californiacustom.com/images/products/purple-metal-polish.jpg

This stuff was the only one that got rid of the baked on crap of my tail pipes. Check these out....

Purple is the word when it comes to getting the tough to remove carbon build up off your tail pipes (sound like a Shamwah add :lol:

WORD OF ADVICE THOUGH...this stuff does contain gritty bits that will scratch your good chrome. Only use on really dirty bits and use the other softer products on the shiny stuff that just needs a buff up.

They have other products in the range that I would give a try next time I'm needing them.

Stewie,
Did you have to spend much time to get them clean, I have always used that stuff on dragster pipes and it always worked i tried it on the SV LE i have and it got 90% off but the rest wont budge, i somehow think it has to do with the fact they have probably never been polished with any previous owners but just had to ask anyway

At first yeah. Should have used their deoxidiser first, would have made the work easier. Now their done it is a breeze. A quick coat of deoxidiser then a gentle rub with the purple followed by a quick buff. They look better than new now.
