Painted exhaust tips

Send it out to Scott (UR50SLO) and have him do it.

He'll take care of you.

Re: Painted exhaust tips

Probably should use something that can handle high heat. example: Krylon SP670 VHT High Heat Spray Paint, Gloss Black at OutdoorPros.com

Re: Painted exhaust tips

Brake caliper or VHT paint should work, caliper paint would probably work better.

Re: Painted exhaust tips

Should I ruff up the tips first or just spray the caliper paint over them?
