Default Pipe coating

I've seen people using what appears to be silicon diff oil to coat their pipes to keep them clean and shinny. Looking for tips on this.

Thanks!

Most used is a high temp vaseline but from several RC brands there are spray cans with exhaust protect.

I use silicone oil in a spray, used for hinges and locks. I bought it really cheap from Lidl, from their W5 line- pretty basic and easily obtainable stuff, I'm sure. Whenever I remember to spray it on () the pipe doesn't attract more crap. However, once or twice a year I put the pipes in antifreeze and then they really look new.

Do you heat the antifreeze? If so, what temperature? How long do you leave the pipe in the antifreeze?

I use an outdoor camping gas burner, so there's no temperature regulation. I just keep it on lowest, and cook it for 4-5 hours, occasionally turning it off and then on again. The first time I did it though I cooked it for more than that, since it was really dirty. Be sure to do it outdoors

Jeff - Wait till the wifey is asleep. Spray the pipe with Easy Off and put it in the oven.

I have a old crock pot for this purpose. I leave it on medium heat, and use a hanger to fish it out. Depends on how caked your pipe is. I will need to find some pics if I have any. I think I left it in for maybe 6 hours, after that I wipe it down and let it cool. Works with headers too, they just dont get as clean as a pipe would.

I also use the crock pot method with antifreeze. $ 15.00 for the crock pot at Wal-Mart. I put it on high and let is sit over night on the patio. Fish them out with needle nose pliers, wash them off inside and out and then polish them with Mothers Aluminum mag wheel polish. Look like new again. When I get to the track, I put this on and keeps the pipe real clean. I tried the RB spray can and threw them away. Very messy and did not work to good.
