Pure exhaust tips polished

First thread, I Looked at the tail pipes and they looked awful, began rubbing them with Autoglym super resin polish made no difference,
Cleaned them wit strong blend of car wash shampoo,
Dried with microfibre towels.
covered with G10 compound and machine polished starting at number 1 speed then moving onto number 2 speed.
Buffed to shine wit fresh micro fibre

Very limited space to be able to the inside and top edges , so removed the trim covers for more room, passenger side is all clips, driver side 2 screws and clips.
Metal screws very tight used a small socket set to undo the screws.

Tips polished up really nice look chrome now.

To get a perfect showroom finish will clay bar and polish again and apply poor boys wheel wax which resists heat more than normal wax to keep them looking good for longer.

Overall took about 1 hour inc taking trim off and on
Sorry not the best pics of before as started without taking pics, these are from when i bought the car. Second pic is the finished job.
There is a small amount of pitting on the tips which i will tackle with clay bar.
