Question Melted "goop" on exhaust .

Does anyone know a way to remove melted polyester or nylon that melted onto a hot exhaust pipe? Thanks. Moot

Typically all I have done is get a safety edge razor blade and carefully work the blade along the surface being carefull not to gouge it slowing slicing away the junk melted on it.

When done polish area with some chrome polish if you want a shine, baking soda if you want dull

After doing the razor blade thang, try some oven cleaner. DO NOT get it on your paint.

Spray oven cleaner on a rag and wipe it on the pipe (so you don't get overspray on anything). Let it sit awhile then a little elbow grease it should come right off.

Try nail polish remover. Just make sure the pipe is cold.. worked for me.

Problem solved. Thanks. You guys are awesome. Rode 5 miles, bought oven cleaner, put it on, had a cup of coffee, sipped it off, finished with chrome polish, pipe is like new. Moot

Easy Off over cleaner marked for COLD oven use. Let it sit over night and wipe off. One of the major aftermarket exhaust manufacturers is including appearance tips in their magazine advertisements and this was one I read recently.
