polish exhaust tips

I'm wondering what others have used to polish their exhaust tips.

I recently got a (free) factory "S" muffler that looked like the tips had never been polished. A cheap powerball and Mother's metal polish gave them nice chrome-like shine.

In another thread a product named "Blue Magic" was recommended. I picked up a jar at CDN Tire....works great, shined them up like new. Not much work either and I liked that part .

SimiChrome Paste and Nevr-Dull wadding has long been a favorite of mine.
