    i read the stickies already but no one mentioned about cleaning the muffler.
    So i guess you use the same fluid as washing the car body? My muffler has a lot of dried black grease of oil from outside and inside.

    Agree with both answers above.

    I believe I've also read that you can use #0000 steel wool. If you just have tar/oil/grease maybe try some bug/tar remover first so you don't introduce scratches?

    I find that the Eagle1 A2Z wheel cleaner, sprayed onto my wheel brush, works very well for cleaning mufflers. Of course followed up by a metal polish of somesort.

    I've used some left over Turtle Wax chrome cleaner I found at my parents on my stainless steel muffler. It works great. I'm probably going to pick up some of that Eagle One cleaner that look like a tuft of steel wool. I also used bug and tar remover with light steal wool once and it worked decently.

    That's a great idea, never thought about that!
