Again, another little job I've been meaning to do for a while, proper clean of the exhaust tips. Removed them from the car, got the old Solvol Aotosol on the job,
(took me a while :rolleyes:) Then a further polish, then a wax,
re-fitted them and decided to fit them a bit further out,
(easily done as there is a sliding slot, so you can adjust them) think it looks loads better, a bit more purposeful, a simple thing like that, looks great! :) Having a minute now I'm exhausted (sorry :rolleyes:)

That's a good tip. I've never heard of Solvol Autosol but it clearly works - together with a lot of elbow grease, I imagine.

One of the exhaust tips on my R Class refused point blank to come off .... the bolt holding it on had stripped its thread so it was left on :):)

As I said Wednesday morning, Anusol is much better, you can get further up the visible area with it and your tips will gleam
Nice autocorrect :cool::p:D

Solvol Autosol, the motorcyclists friend! :D

Can't believe you've never heard of Solvol Mac :shock: it's been around forever, in fact I'm sure I heard a rumour about God polishing his first 'bike with it. :D:D
