Re: Powdercoat/ high temp paint exhaust

I used the VHT on my 2006's 5" TD tips and it lasted a lot longer than tthe powder on my 13's. I plan to pull my Borla off sometime this summer and use the VHT system.

Thanks for the info.. I talked to a local guy here who powdercoats and he says that his high temp stuff only goes to 200 degrees before it turns matte.. The question is whether the tips reach 200.. Can you post pics when you get a chance?

I bought the VHT system and am waiting for it.. The main issue I'm worried about is prepping the smooth stainless tips... I had one guy tell me to use an acid etch... I was thinking I'd just hit it with sandpaper first.. What did you do to prep the tips? And did you go through the curing process?
