\"Beatify-ing\" headers

Does anyone know what to use to help clean the headers on the engine? I have race headers and they burnt nice and copper for a while, but now, little blue marks are coming thru, and it looks bad. Any suggestions?

i dont think you can get rid of the blue marks. i think those are from the heat and there is nothing you can do. i believe. well you could maybe go get it ceramic coated but that will cost a little bit

Is there a way to get the rest of the headers burn blue or something? To even out the colors?

scotchbrite pad...green one i think
i got this scotch pad in the front of walmart by the cadh registers..a little sponge for 1 dollar with white on 1 side and rough part on the other. It took the marker that was drawn all over a laptop right off with ease. I was sitting their scrubbing it with every cleaner and it would even fade the marker. So maybe that will do the trick.

Ok, thanks guys. I bought that Metal polisher, by I think Meguirs. That sucks. It did'nt do a damn thing.

I'm pretty sure the Pope has to handle that one.


In all seriousness, I vote for ceramic coating.
