    I have a T304 stainless steel tip on my exhaust set up and it has turned golden color within a month from installing. It looks awesome but is this normal from the heat being pushed out?

    Step bars, billet grill with custom TOYOTA, MB Quart RSI 216 components, Hifonics ZXi 4410, RAAMmat deadened doors/back wall/roof covered with ensolite , 24" Magnaflow muffler, hand polished stock exhaust tip, tinted, OEM TRD Bilstiens all around with 1/4" spacers up front to level it out. Sport wheels added.
    Get some KABOOM bathroom cleaner and some #0000 steel wool. Spray the tip with the KABOOM and let it sit for about 5 minutes (respraying it every couple of minutes or so). Then use the steel wool lightly to polish the tip back to new.

    I've done this on my motorcycle SS headers for years keeping them looking like new. You'll find that after you do it a couple of times, it doesn't turn gold that much any more.
