Hmmm Spotty Pipes

Not had the V6 long but wanted to sort out the intake pipes with some Autosol,rushed back from halfords and got stuck in. They do look loads better but there are a few rust spots that dont want to go,I fear a bit of Scotchbrite will just take all the (shine) off so dont want to use that, any more ideas or does it just get rid of them the more times you treat?
I also used Duraglit and I reckon this is just as good if not easier than Autosol! Served me well for 20 odd years with the Army so I thought Id give it a go

I cleaned up a 'spare' set today. Used steel wool on the spots and they came up lovely. Bit of Autosol at the end and they're as good as new.

Nope - not if you don't apply too much pressure. Take the easiest one off that you can (probably the right hand side) and try on the underneath first.

Use steel wool though, not wire wool.
