Dipped my exhaust

Well, after feedback from others in this forum with regards of polishing my exhaust. I used the recommendation of another member (mhinvest) and just dipped it instead of polishing. Since I am taking the chrome off my truck, why not dip it black. Anyway it was really easy, all the prep i did was use 400 grit sand paper to smooth the rust spots and applied 4 coats allowing 45min between each coat. I will keep everyone update on how it is wearing.





This is my first dip.

2010 crewmax "Limited" TRD Supercharger, 6" pro-comp lift, 20" KMC rims, BW pocket flares, duel exhaust 20% tint, , weathertech mats, BAK F1,color match (chrome delete).

Looks good man. I like black exhaust. I did mine with a high temp header spray. Took sandpaper and scotchbrite to the tips/pipes (the parts that are visible anyway).....then cleaned them....and hit em with the header coat. The heat from the exhaust is said to "cure" it to supposedly make it "permanent." We will see, but I've had it for seven months now with no issues.

I did mine with a high temp BBQ spray paint. Sprayed it from the flanges back to the dumped tips. It didn't last too long.
