Re: [DML] Re:rusty DMC dual exhaust

It isnt DMCH's coating that is the problem, it is how the exhaust is  
laid out. The Converters hang low and are behind the tires and get a  
constant spray of any debris on the road.

When I sold my car everything was perfect except the areas that would  
get sprayed with road debris.

It was like sandblasting the coating away as you were driving.

Really it is a shame that DMCH hasnt commented lately on this new  
issue. It is also a shame the owners have to remove this exhaust that  
was originally a pain to install in the first place. The owners  
should almost be compensated to send their exhaust in to get recoated.

For myself it was a poor design flaw on DMCH on how they laid the  
exhaust route out.

Now we all know why DMCH discontinued selling this exhaust unless you  
were getting a Stage II engine.

Last I heard they were going stainless and would be offering a  
discounted upgrade to original Stage I exhaust owners.
