I have the exhaust trumpets that exit through the rear valance and they are covered with black soot. What is the best way to clean this?

Thanks

I find that a direct spray of 'Simple Green' not diluted and a scrubbing with a tooth brush really works. Rinse with a light spray of water occassionally. This stuff cuts grease and oil.

I found using a buffer works excellent with a little polish on the pad.it got rid of all that fuel oxidation. but i will try that simple green!

Good question. I use Simple Green, but that didn't get 30 year-old crud that was caked off. I've tried ###0 steel wool (gets the recent stuff off), toothbrushes, etc. Finally, I got a penny to scrape the big chunks off, but the little crevices were still full of it. Finally, I used an old cuticle utensile to scrape off the last of it; now Simple Green once a month or so to keep it clean.

i use steel wool and WD-40 to remove soot from my tips
using the WD-40 also helps them look good longer.
