2013 Ford Focus ST: Exhaust Tip Cleaning, Before And After
June 17, 2013
With the 2013 Ford Focus ST, you get the nifty, center-exit exhaust tip instead of the regular Focus's largely hidden (passenger-side) exhaust tip. But with this design you also get a fair amount of visible soot buildup with this ST exhaust, too.
To show our long-term ST a little love, I decided to clean up the tip and bring back that shiny, lustrous look.
I've used Eagle One Nevr-Dull polish in the past, and it seemed to be the way to go here. With a bit of cleaning I got our exhaust tip to look like this:
See, back to its chrome-y goodness!
Actually, it still needs a bit more work to get it to truly pristine status, but I'll give it a final round of polishing next time I wash the car.
