Exhaust Chrome Maintenance
ok, what say you, I have always just used a good grade automotive paste wax on the chrome. now I see a few saying use a chrome polish, is that just fancy for paying more?

RE: Exhaust Chrome Maintenance
I don't use wax or anything on chrome exhaust, I've seen where is causes discolouration and marks when the exhaust gets hot etc... on chrome exhaust and pipes I always use regular automotive glass cleaner. Wipe on, wipe off.

any wax put on parts that get hot like case covers and exhaust pipes will just melt off in a matter of minutes because wax has a very low melting point around 120 degrees. you can use it on wheels forks and anywhere that wont get hot. once chrome gets a scratch it's permanent you can use #0000 steel wool (wet only) no soap to remove heavy debris. they make chrome polish which is a waste of money because chrome is so hard that it can not be polished. chrome can not be restored period. using blue job or the like will get the bluing out at the cost of losing a bit of luster each time it's applied.
