    Alright guys i am curious about painting my exhaust tips. Wondering if I should paint them, rhino line them, or powdercoat them?
    Thanx for all advice

    I'm also thinking about painting the end of my exhaust pipe, I think high heat paint is the way to go but I'm not sure

    I just painted my exhaust from the muffler back, but stopped just before the tips. I want to see how the paint is going to hold up over time before I paint my tips. I did it a couple weeks ago and so far so good. I used VHT header paint in flat black.

    I think it would look great to paint your exhaust tips but i dont know how long paint would last.

    i dont think rhino or any liner would hold up to the heat, engine blodk or header paint would be the most eceonmical way to go.
