Hey ya'll! I'm wondering if there is any way to make the exhaust header here nice and clean with blue again. I think it's salt corrosion, but I have no idea how to go about it, and neither do I wanna damage it.
You could try polishing it with metal / silverware polish but I highly doubt that's gonna work due to the fact it looks heat-cycled. Other options if it bothers you that much are heat wrapping or powder coating.
Any firm that does stainless polishing would get that back to shiny metal easily enough. For it to look right, you'd need the whole pipe up to the can to be polished. Duke exhausts pipes are stainless, but a fairly cheap alloy that corrodes over time.
