    Not much you can do, When
    the chrome headers get hot
    its the nickel that turns
    On top of the nickel is a
    clear coat that gives the
    chrome look, You have too
    have the chrome stripped
    off and then buff/strike the nickel or renickel and then recoat with the clear
    Not much good to polish
    the outside.
    If their double wall then
    you really got problems.

    if they are stainless I think that you can buff it out. I have a friend who does a lot of welding on stainless steel and I can remember him telling me that you can buff out the heat discoloration on the metal, ime not sure how but I will ask him again.

    Greg, I've heard that muiradic acid (?) works well---but that is only what I have heard---and it sounds like it might be easier than buffing . Buffing out stainless steel will restore it to what you're looking for, for sure.
