The carbon fiber has lost its luster and shine on my Termi exhaust. It almost seems like its starting to discolor a little bit too up top. Any good suggestions on polishing or rebuffing to get the shine back?
I agree, from experience. A good polishing will bring the shine back and, to help keep it that way, use a detailer with a UV protectant.I would try a good quality polishing compound. It is the cheaper alternative to having your carbon pieses re-cleared.
Be careful w/ the silicone stuff, if the carbon gets hot enough the silicone will get into the pores of the carbon and mix w/ the resins making it worse, all most sticky, requiring it to be recleared. This is especially true of "Race" pre peg carbon which is very pourus and rough w/o a clear coat. Most DP carbon has a very thin coat of clear. No only is it pourus, but if u put it up to a light, you can see all the pin holes in the carbon weave.I just spray mine with a silicone aerosol, leave for a few minutes then polish off with a soft rag, works well.
