Painting your mufflers ?

Anyone thinking of painting their mufflers flat black?

After seeing the car in person looking at the rear from a distance, the bright mufflers stand out, especially with the black rear panel under the bumper.

I was thinking of simply spraying them with flat black hi-temp paint.

Your thougths...?

I'll keep the exhaust tips chrome.

What's up, KJS? Will definitely paint if I end up not getting the Borlas.

If you do paint your mufflers and I do, prep and clean then run the engine and heat the mufflers up and then use high temp paint. Don`t heat them up to too hot or you will cause the paint to boil on the muffler.
