Is there any good ways to go about polishing and cleaning a cold air intake pipe? mine is looking rough and not shiny at all,not sure what the metal is made of though. any ideas?
Original Simple Green can corrode aluminum. Use Simple Green ProHD or Simple Green Aircraft and Precision Cleaner on aluminum. ProHD is available at Home Depot.blazinlow89 said:Most likely aluminum. As for cleaning you can soak it in hot water and detergent, or simple green to break down any junk. Then reach what you can with a wet rag, rinse thoroughly and let air dry. You can also look for a large cleaning brush to run through if you want.
Mothers if you want to buff all day. If you have access to a good polisher then there is a polish called wenol, it is on the pricey side but works like magic. You can hand buff with it as well but it will take a little while. Make sure that it doesn't have a clear coat too.eutechnyx said:I was thinking some mothers aluminum polish? its not "dirty" its just dull looking.
Have you considered painting it? Duplicolor, Krylon, and Rustoleum offer a variety of unique finishes. Paint it to match the body, go for a hammered look, use the color-changing stuff... lots of options there.eutechnyx said:I was thinking some mothers aluminum polish? its not "dirty" its just dull looking.
