    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.

    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.
