    For purely cosmetic reasons, is there a good way to clean the downpipes/manifold - just a bit fed up with their 'dull' look?

    I should think Harpic Max Power will do the trick after seeing what it did to my stainless steel sink when I poured some in instead of the usual disinfectant I had run out of. It was only in there for half an hour before I rinsed it away . . . now I've been told by the boss to get a new sink/drainer :430:
