2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: Detailing
August 14, 2014
In the past, I've clearly expressed my distain for dirty supercars. A rat rod with side pipes is supposed to be filthy, but I like my brand-new cars to be shiny. And even though we wash our 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray on a regular basis, something always gets missed: the exhaust pipes.
What used to be a shiny chrome exit for the gargling sounds of V8 awesomeness is now covered in soot, so I fished out my personal bag of detailing supplies and applied some elbow grease.
The simple combination of Mother's Mag & Aluminum Polish ($10 at any auto store), a rag and some Miyagi-style wax-on, wax-off circles gave me excellent results.
I may be one of a dozen people in all of Los Angeles that notices this little difference, but with such seriously conspicuous exhaust tips, this feels like the right way to treat them.
