How do you keep the muffler shiny?

Question speaks for itself. My muffler is stainless steel or mirror finish, how can I maintain its shinyness. [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif[/IMG]

You can treat your muffler the same way you treat your cars paint. I use to use glaze and polish to keep the muffler shiny. You can also use polish that is made for stainless steel but I think that the glaze and wax works better and gives you longer protection.

Meguires. Start off with #7 glaze and finish off with #26 wax or Meguires Gold. Use it on the whole car....

My exhaust started burning off my bumper. I had a hard time scraping the stuff off, and there is still residue left from the paint/plastic. So I can't really focus on keeping my exhaust system shiny...LOL.. poor me has to focus on getting all the crap off first.
