Yeah but I already have plastidip left over from the fogs and since I don't plan on using it I'm gonna try it out on the exhaust this weekend when I get home from my work trip

Yeah I was just looking at those dipyourcar.com videos and Fonzie mentioned he dipped his exhaust. I googled and other car forum members said they did it and it was holding up fine. I was thinking of trying it out

Burkeboy No and I wouldn't advise it. It is rubber based, your exhaust gets hot, and it will melt. But there is spray paint that is rated to 500 degrees I think.
