Cleaning/restoring titanium MPE tips?

Hi all,

Any advice on cleaning the outside and inside of the non carbon titanium tips for the M Performance muffler?

Mine are pretty bad, water spots and carbon buildup are my main concerns.. will post a picture soon.

Recommend products? Can I use metal polish to restore the finish on the outside?

Should work the same with non carbon fiber tips.

P21S Polishing Soap https://www.p21s.com/portfolio/polishing-soap/

I was pretty hesitant to use my normal metal polishing pastes/compounds on the bead blasted finish on the titanium of the m performance tips. The P21S Polishing Soap did a good job of cleaning without affecting the finish. As a plus it smells pretty good!
