Hi all. I've got quite a few polished parts in the engine bay that are getting water marks and stains on them. What is everyone using to clean them and make them shiney again???

The metal polish?? I've used a bit but it seems like it's discolouring the parts.

'0000' gauge wire wool works well with polished parts. Too fine to scratch but still strong enough to clean up the metal when used with a decent metal polish.
The wire wool also gets rid of water marks on glass windows too.

I've used the t-cut metal polish and that seemed to work a bit better than autosol on my alloy radiator.

What I used to do on my old fords was depending how bad it is I would use autosol to get rid of the stubborn stains then use meguiars to finish it off and give it a good shine.

If it's just from a drip, and more of a residue rather than a stain, I've found that vinegar works well. Just don't rub too hard to start with otherwise it can scratch. Works well on external paintwork too - especially from a leaking garage roof!!

I use any metal polish if it's really bad but if it's not to bad then I use a small amount of toothpaste on a soft cloth rinse and dry also leaves car smelling minty :)
