Sand it down.. I painted my exhaust in the back with a high heat paint from Wal-Mart. Its used on BBQ grill. It works great its like a flat balck and no rust.... I like it ill take a pic when i have a chance..

You can sand it down, then get real fine grit to get it real smooth and some Mothers polish, re-polish it. Clear it and be happy.

A bit off-topic, but how hard was it to do the dual exhaust?

I was planning on doing a dual exhaust. Is it the stock system, or an aftermarket?

As i said,it's a bran new purchase from last year so few things still unknown.

A random guy @ the mechanic school told me:"Oh they screw the engine tune by going dual".

I said WHAT?
He said the stock exhaust comes in Stainless Borla.You have less HP the way it is done ect...

I also ask a muffler guy.He said you don't loose HP and it look good.

Before i chrom it,i need to know if i don't loose HP.

He's asking if the dual pipes drop HP.

It's possible, Cossie pretty much maxed out the exhaust system.

???Any time one bank has dual exhaust????
