Rust on exhaust. Normal?

Approximately 1,800 miles. Is this rust on the exhaust assembly normal? I have not driven in any weather or areas where sand or salt would contaminate parts.

If you get the chrome package, they throw the rust in at no extra cost.

I'd never expect rust to arrive so soon tho.

Normal. I'm rather fussy about my vehicles so I'm going to touch those areas up with high temp paint when the weather breaks.

Re: Rust on exhaust. Normal?

The welds and added parts, such as hangers, aren't stainless, so rust will exist. Besides, "stainless" will get a rust coating eventually also, so don't worry about that.
