Powder Coat, or High Heat Paint, which is better for exhaust?
I am going for a blacked out theme on my VN700. I want to do the exhaust system in black.
What would hold up better to the heat, Powder coating, or hi temp Exhaust paint?
I have used hi temp paint on bikes exhaust headers before, and have had good results.
I haven't used hi temp paint on chrome pipes tho. I'm thinking I would have to sand the chrome to scuff it up, and then paint it.
Any ideas or suggestions??
I don't want to buy an aftermarket system, just stick with the stock pipes for now. I want to paint the pipes in a flat or semi gloss if it's available, and go with gloss on the heat shields as they won't get as hot as the pipes.
