Pete Messina created a new topic ' Janitrol exhaust' in the forum. yesterday

The janitrol heater exhaust ducting in my Aztec sticks out about an inch below the belly, and creates a lot of exhaust soot under the belly, trailing almost to the tail. The airplane is cleaned often so the soot doesn't build up, but it is a challenge to remove. 2 questions:
1. Is there any sort of discharge assembly (or air deflecting "gizmo") that could be installed to reduce the exhaust buildup on the belly of the airplane? and
2. What magic product can you recommend that is being used successfully to clean exhaust off an airframe?
