As subject says.
In the process of adding exp to my iceled ufo kit and from repostioning the tubes i noted that the tubes that were fitted were very dirty :oops:
Alot of road grime :( so what do you use on yours ?
I used carwash but didnt get rid of it all :? and not sure what works and what dont on the tubes as i would hate to ruin them.

Oh and they glow so much better when cleaner 8) but need to get them really clean without discolouring the tube :?
So how do you clean yours?

NRG...

I never really get on with car shampoo. A dash of good old fairy liquid in warm water is about as effective as it gets. Tar spots can be softened with IPA (Isopropyl Alcohol) but use it sparingly and wash down with the soapy water afterwards. The trick to getting a sparkling finish is to buy a can of silicone spray lubricant and polish that in well with a soft cloth 8)

What not to do is let your 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera leak petrol on then. The petrol eats into the polycarbonate. Mine went a little brown (probably with rust of the car), but after sanding the tubes a bit and polishing them they look fine again. As you've seen from the pics of the Burner, these kit's were built to last. :)
