It sure does look good with them up front. How's that sweet exhaust setup been since you've been running it awhile now?

I'm again disappointed with the expensive, high-tempwerature paint not holding up worth a damn. But it sounds awesome, and I love the look. I'd call this my best exhaust yet, I'm very proud of this one.

You are a proud member of my front is now wider than the rear club. They do make a smaller scorpian in a 18 i think, but thats besides the point anyways. Looks good.

What kind did you use?
One of these days, I have a 70s minibike to restore an will be needing some paint for the engine/exhaust.
I would rather learn from your misfortune than my own...  
lol!

Exhaust paint? Silver flake rustoleum. Forgot what its rated for. Holding up really good. i used duplicolor on my motorcycle exhaust for 1200 and it burned right off really bad and starting to rust again right out of the head there. Little disappointing but thats usually covered in mud so the rest of the exhaust looks good. Rolling Eyes

Well- I can steer a bit now and nothing is rubbing. But with all that offset, I know the J part of my spindles are going to start bending pretty quickly. I think there's some more frontend work in MULE's future.

Needs some of my official spindle braces.

Also- my front track is now maybe 6" or so wider than the rear, and her nose sits up a wee bit. More work...

That's Redline's department...

The paint I used is VHT (Very High Temperature), supposed to be FOR exhaust systems. Was like $15 for one lousy rattlecan, applied and cured EXACTLY according to instruction. Wife wasn't thrilled about me baking mufflers in the oven...

I've got a bunch of reconfiguration to do on this thang, I just need to figure out how best to achieve it.

That VHT stuff is what I've used on exhausts the past couple times. Worked good for me for the most part. I didn't have good luck with the high heat primer, so now I just go without. If you have much rust on the metal before painting I think it will come back through. I sand blasted my motorcycle muffler and sprayed it off with carb cleaner, still rusted back through. On the other hand the black paint on the Baja sears exhaust is VHT and holding up good. Even where fuel drips on it from the leaky carb stayed on.

Beats me, man. The propane cylinders had zero rust. I wire-wheeled all teh factory paint off, and laid the new paint on according to instructions. I then oven-cured the paint according to the 3 stages given in the instructions, using an oven thermometer and a clock. Dunno.
