Default Best way to polish 2060

I'm wondering what the best way to polish my 2060 pipe is. I clean it up but it just doesn't have that good look like it does new. It really looks like I just bought this thing from the junk yard

Crock pot with antifreese. Let it cook for 6-8 hours, polish with mothers and looks like a brand new pipe.

Man I'm a little slow today.
I say just let your avitar clean your pipe. Looks like the best choice so far.
