What would be the best way too go about restoring rusted/spotted stock exhaust tips on a GT muffler?

Pick up some metal polish from your local auto parts store and just be patient. Mother's Mag/Aluminum or Eagle One NeverDull can be found damn near anywhere. It may take a while to get them looking good, but it'll work. I used Mother's on my 99's tips, which were trashed..worked at them for a good hour and they came out spotless.

I used metal polish and some steel wool :D Came out beautiful after about 5-10 minutes a piece :)

I painted mine a while back with high temp silver paint. The paint rusted off agian in about a couple months. Next time I do it I'm going to spend the extra money and and prime them first.

I used Flitz on mine. I don't think anyone had ever touched them before me.
