My exhaust tips and shield are a little rough. Would like to paint them so they look better. Do I need to use high temp paint?

Well not really but the better you clean them the better it will stick, and if you want black you can use high temp bbq spray bomb.

Thanks Brad.

It looks like the tips and the shield can be removed. I planned on repainting them black.

They were probably anodized originally and yes you can take them off if the bolts are not to rusted in to place.

I would follow Brad's product suggestion since it is recommended for high temps. Before applying any kind of paint, rough it up real well with a scuff pad and clean the parts off good with hot water and Simple Green or something similar. Spray a little adhesion promoter on the parts and then paint them with whatever you desire. Bulldog is a readily available adhesion promoter. O'Reilly stocks it. The other parts stores probably do as well.

Thanks all.

I've been spraying the bolts with PB Blaster for a couple days now. I hope by tomorrow it will penetrate good enough so they can be removed easily.

Now I'm not sure what would look better. Satin, flat or gloss black?

Flat black looks like a dirty pipe IMO. Not so gloss...

BTW, the 'combined tip' on my S4 is welded on. I polished it in situ.

If you go black, satin would be my suggestion...

I went gloss black using brake caliper paint. I think they turned out real nice. Better than the pictures show.

That looks great.

-I have the Borla exhaust that 928 International sold for years, and I hate it!

I like the sound, which is just about right. At idle, this tells the proles what is and what ISN'T, and ensures them that this slick little car in front of them that they are pretty sure is a 9-something or other is an ALLIGATOR.

"Did you do a chevy conversion on that?" I've had that conversation over open windows about a dozen times.

Teeth pointing south as the car rumbles...

"Nope, it is the original engine. Porsh-eh started producing V8 powered cars in 1978. I just put a proper exhaust on this one"

Alligators are nothing to be scared of, but you DO have to give them respect. I've seen 300 pound gators along the canals I take my boat down just a few hundred meters from my house. They are just like 928's. You DON'T provoke these animals, just like I won't provoke my 3300 pound 928 into any sideways antics if you really want to stay alive!

What I wish is that there was a proper exhaust tip for the Borla system that 928 International sold for a while.

Probably only something that I would notice. But, now I'm going to start looking at others to see what shape theirs are in. :D

Rick - any noticable effects on the paint from the heat after driving?

None that I've seen so far.
