Is a little bit of surface rust on the welds of my exhaust normal? the exhaust is maybe a month old and im already noticing slight rusted spots on the welds, it is a stainless pipe and it looks like they sprayed something over the welds, but im worried about rust really becoming a problem over the winter months, any ideas on how to stop it from rusting further?

yeah that rusting should be normal if you are scared about it then go ahead and treat them with a rust inhibitor.

the pipe maybe stainless but the weld isn't.

yes that totally normal. it is surface rust. i weld for a living.

if you want take the exhaust off. wire brush the weld and spray the whole exhaust with high temp silver of flat black paint
