    What method should I use? I have 2.5 Flowmaster tips, which are kinda dirty, and I see Trey polished his, and I want to do the same to mine. Any tips?

    After I get mine all cleaned off I use the mothers billet metal polish with a cloth. Seems to work pretty well.

    I did it with them on. I would have to take the whole catback off since I have the tips that come orignally on the flow 40s catback
