[DML] Re: Muffler Paint

I've had very good luck painting the muffler with ordinary hi-temp 
barbeque grill aluminum paint. I did it a few years (and probably 8000 
miles) ago and it still looks pretty good, starting to flake a bit in 
the middle now.  

I spent a lot of time wire-wheel/sanding etc the muffler first (off the 
car). If you just spray over the crud that'd on there it won't last 10 
minutes. If the center secion has a lot of flaking rust, it's hard to 
prep it right. Nothing is permanent, although I suppose you could get a 
muffler jet-hot coated.

I've also seen them polished - that looks cool until you run the car, 
then it turns brown pretty quickly. 

With all the header installations going in now, clean used mufflers are 
not all that hard to find.
