ginger phil did you paint the whole exhaust or just the thin pipe and how many coats did you get out of the small tin.

also a few posts back someone was saying that he used hammerite to paint the exhaust I used to use this when I used to do up old little 2-stroke mopeds before I sold them, it does'nt work it becomes sticky when the exhaust is hot :D

with a little can you could paint 30+ exhaust and thats giving them 2 coats.

Some people use engine paint, some people use Hammerite high heat paint, I personally recommend Hammerite Barbecue paint.

I painted the whole lot.
I've still got three-quarters of the tin left - it would last for years! :D

it worked well for me the paint does wear off after like 5 months but just redo it for the first 3 months it looks like new

shake can first, sand and make sure there not much rust before you paint

I had my sukida SK50 QT4 sat on my drive from september to february with the exaust uncovered and it still is uncovered today because my cover is too big and I got to screw it up at the number plate which leaves the exuast uncovered and so far no signs of major rust. But now that Iv said this you can gaurntee that it will rust! Icon_lol5

Excellent advice there Phil.
Funnily enough I used the same stuff on my imported Spacy when giving a bit of a refurb. Although I admit the Spacy hasn't been out in the rain the dreaded rust hasn't returned :D :D Very Happy Exclamation


Should mention, I plastered the exhaust with the paint. Re-coat after re-coat it definitely looks a lot smarter and will no doubt help pro-long the life of the exhaust.

I oil my exhaust on rainy days. Water instantly comes off by this method. Of course, you can only do this if your exhausts isn't rusted already.

Surely the oil will just burn off when the exhaust gets hot Question

best advise is to wait till it falls off then buy a stainless steel one that won't rust!!
