Cleaning out the pipes

  • First thing to do is spray our Orange Agent degreasing citrus cleaner directly onto the area to be cleaned. Spray it about 15cm away from pipes.
  • Leave it sit for a minute, then get one of the brushes from The Foursome set of brushes, (we like to use the Nuts & Guts or the Big Boy Brett brush for this job). Spray some Orange Agent into the brush and then clean right around the pipes. 
  • We also like to clean the carbon deposits inside the exhaust while we're at it. Get a good sized bucket and half fill with a capful of any of our car washes in it. Spray the inners with Orange Agent and then unceremoniously clean them by sticking our Flat Head wheel brush up the pipes, spinning it around and cleaning the insides. Its small head design works a treat for this job on most bigger bore exhausts. Be warned, as this can get quite messy, particularly if you're using the "in and out" technique with a bit of speed for cleaning them. 
  • Rinse off with water and wipe the pipes clean/dry with a Dirty Deeds microfibre cloth. Don't get too much water inside the exhausts.  
  • If there is an excessive carbon build up (like on many turbo powered cars), or road tar around the pipes, it will need a clean with our Ta Ta Tar, or a clay bar if the tar is older. 
  • Once you're done with the grime, you now want some shine. So grab our Metal Polish and a couple of our Dirty Deeds microfibre cloths.
