Painting Exhaust Tip

I decided that I was tired of the dirty, ugly factory tip. I spruced it up with some DupliColor.

Looks good for a cheap DIY project. Wonder how long the paint will last with the high EGTs.

Looks great! I have been thinking of the doing the same thing to mine. Does the dupli-color come in "high heat"? So far I have been looking at the rustoleum "high heat" paint.

That is what I used. Safe for intermittent temperatures up to 500 degrees.

Looks great. I was considering doing the same thing, and now that I have seen your photo, I am going to do it.

I used a scouring pad and regular dish soap mostly and 220 grit sandpaper for the really bad spots.

Can you post a pic of the entire exhaust side of the truck? I want to see it from a bit further back. Looks great from what I can see though.
