Hey, does anyone know of a good polish to use for the titanium mufflers ? I use Mothers Chrome Polish on the chrome rims on my 1999 Corvette, but so far do not what kind of polish to use on the titanium mufflers on my Z06 on order. Anyone have any suggestions ? I know there has to be a few members that polish their awesome titanium Z06 mufflers. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

Just let them turn pretty shades of light blue from the heat /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif. This is what titanium will do with heat -- seen it many many times on titanium exhaust systems on motorcycles. GM Owner's Manual mentions that they may turn color from heat.

Hmm...I know what you mean about letting them turn colors, but shouldn't they be cleaned with something ? Not really ? Any thoughts... /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

Like I said above, titanium naturally will turn colors due to heat. The hotter it gets, the more blueish shade they become. I think it would look cool on my EB Z /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif.

Try a "blue" remover, they are used on chrome motorcycle exhaust pies ad shold be able to ge some of it of.

But, titanium naturually turns into different colors when heated, like purple and blue, I say, leave it like it is, so everybody knows that it is titanium. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif
