ok im planning to paint my silncer black for my TRM (even though i dont use it much, its just kinda ugly with it on):
(before and after silencer)



now i was wondering what do i need to do to go about doing this? do i just buy a can of high temp black paint and spray it on? do i need to prep it with anything first? and where can i get these needed materials and stuff? thanks in advance

yeah i think high temp paint is fine... it's going to be all dirty and stuff anyway, so don't worry about prepping it! just spray that sucka

Just leave it and it will turn black from the exhuast anyways. Or drive without it in, I drove around with mine in for a while, then I missed that deep tone and yanked the sucker out. Its nicely covered in carbon now.

yea, the thing is i rarely use it so mines always pretty clean.even if its covered in carbon (which has happened before) i still want a more permanant cover for it. thats why i want to paint it black.

does anyone know where i can get this high temp paint? do they come in spray cans? and do all kinds bond to metal like my silencer?

JigglyButt - Not sure if u got my question from the asian luders post, but is that ur car parked on Duarte Rd. in front of Arcadia HS every sat? I always see that car there, and it looks like urs.

I have Mothers Chrome Polish, and it works great on my exhaust. Does ne1 have bronzish spots on their exhaust? Its only on the canistor, but I dont think it is rush though.
Is this normal?

you can get some engine enamel (in spray cans), PEPBOYS and other auto parts stores have them.... PEPBOYS locks them in a cage tho


about $4 a can, i used them on my brake calipers and they still look good after a month.

Haha, yeah we used to play at first ave. too but we started playing at the arcadia HS courts instead, don't know why but we just switched.

I don't even know what CF hood I have, my guess is its a VIS one cuz the quality isn't all there.
