RE: [DML] DMCH performance exhaust (rust issue - need opinions)

Did DMCH do the installation?   If so, then I think its clearly their
responsibility to handle the labor and shipping.

Subject: [DML] DMCH performance exhaust (rust issue - need opinions)


In August of last year, I bought DMCH's performance exhaust system. 
I have no problem with the system itself and love it. My problem is 
that I have had the system on the car for roughly 7 months and there 
is a nice build up of surface rust on it already. 

One of the mechanics at DMC Midwest told me that it looks like rust 
that should take years to build up. I don't drive the car every 
day, and keep it in a garage under a cover, so it is not exposed to 
the elements very much.

Steven Wynne personally took a look at the exhaust at the DMC 
Midwest grand opening and told me that they get these systems coated 
by Jet-Hot coatings and I would have to talk to them to fix this 

I called Jet-Hot and they told me that they will correct the problem 
for free under warrenty for up to 3 years, but I would have to send 
in the exhaust system to them to be repaired. They also told me 
that I am responsible for shipping and any other costs not covered 
by the warrenty.

Now, my question is, do you think DMC should have to flip the bill 
for removing the exhaust, shipping, and putting it back on the car? 
I didn't pay $1,500 for a system that I would have rust problems 
with after only 7 months of being on a garage kept car. I don't 
have ready access to a lift and it would be quite a pain in the ass 
for me to get the exhaust on and off in my garage.

Penny for your thoughts?
