    I'm still looking for a way to put the ceramic back on where it fell off and was replaced by rust.

    Hmm i'll try that Mother's polish, I have some laying around, but problem is my ceramic headers are only month or so old... might not shine much more.

    i used steel wool on the rusty spots and it cleaned up mine pretty good.

    Steel wool could shine up ceramic, but it won't replace it where it fell off.

    +1 on mothers. Helps a lot if they aren't mounted at the time. I would think it would be a pain in the shorts if trying to polish while in the car.
