Exhaust tip rust

Nobody noticing lots of rust on your exhaust tips? I have a large amount of it and I've only had the car for a tad over 3 months!

Also anybody know of good metal polish to try to clean this up? I've scrubbed the exhaust tips the 4 times I've hand washed the car so far as well.

Mine have had plenty of salt and mud on then. No rust.

Can you snap a pick and post it? Try Brasso for starters. Cheaper alternatives, coke, vinager, and/or lemon juice with very fine steel wool .

Yes this is the passenger side tip... It's by far the worst of the two. As you can see it's not absolutely terrible but pretty bad for the age of the car with the amount I've been cleaning it.

Re: Exhaust tip rust

Mine has some rust inside too - likely from the water that comes out of the exhaust from the DEF/cat reactions

Re: Exhaust tip rust

If the tips are stainless steel, Barkeepers Friend works just great. I use it all the time on my BMW motorcycle exhaust.

Re: Exhaust tip rust

Ive had mine for 2 months and I noticed it too...its seems like mine is around the outer edges and a little on the inside...I'll try one of these suggestions as soon as the weather breaks...we just got another 8" of snow...

Re: Exhaust tip rust

Once cleaned, would masking it and spraying it with some clear VHT FlameProof paint ( VHT FlameProof™ Coating ) help prevent the rust?

I was going to apply some if this stuff regularly once I get the rust off: Fluid Film 11.75 oz. Spray 2-pak

Search for it on amazon... It's like a thicker, more oily version, of wd40 that dries and forms a rust resistant layer I guess? I just applied some the other day on a few parts on the jeep so we will see how well it works.
