Default Cleaning exhaust residue safely?

I have some exhaust build up on the transom, drives, and tie bar and was wondering what product will clean it without damaging the clear coat or hoses? It's on there pretty good so soap and water won't cut it. What do you guys use? Thanks!

Can you buy that anywhere or do you have to order it?

At your local Dupont paint dealer. It is about $20-22 gal. It is very clean, drys instantly and leaves no streaks. I have used it for 10-15 years.

I used ZEP orange cleaner/degreaser on the diesel smoke on the Carver last weekend, and it came right off Wish I would have thought to use that years ago I have tried many others, and this is the best so far.

Home Depot carries it.
