    Damn tailpipe wont stay clean

    I know i'll be missing something here. I always am.

    Washed the car the other week, then applied Megs All Metal Polysh to the tail pipe.

    Within a matter of days, it was caked in crud again & looked like it hadn't been touched:



    This is it only after a couple of days or so.

    Do you get sealants for this & if so are they needed / what do they do exactly?



    Or is there no way to stop this getting caked so quick?

    It's a Cybox exhaust. Check out eBay. Think it's down as "Style F" or something. 6x4 Sq Oval i believe.


    I did polish it. Surely people aren't washing their tailpipes every other day??
