Basically i have bought an exhaust that is similar to the HKS one in the way that only the back box is stainless. I was wondering if there is anything that i could treat it with as the welds are starting to rust slightly and i want to eliminate the problem before it rots. Also was wondering what people use to polish their exhausts as mine could do with a bit :D

you can get high temp engine paint don't know if that would last on exhaust though as the temps are far higher.

can you not take it and have a stainless pipe welded to your back box ? My mate here in Lincoln would be able to do that, there must be someone near you doing the same thing ?

Im happy with the exhaust the way it is mate. I dont want to lose the note or anything from it. Plus the pipe diameter is about 4 inch
Im on a course in Lincoln at the moment so i might see you about :D

That Diameter should not be a problem and the exhaust would sound the same ;) If you need to have it looked at PM me and I'll drop you his number.

I'll double check about the 4" though.

I seen some very high temperature paint on ebay. Rated up to 500 degrees. Its says for exhausts so i presume this would help?

I was just thinking along the lines of removing the surface rust with a wire brush then spraying with this paint to provide a coat to help prevent the rust coming back. I'll give it a go and let you lot know :D
