Wrapped exhaust pipe looks uglier than my ass after a bad shit. I wrapped the exhaust pipe on my sidecar because the car is mounted very close to it and I'm trying to keep the heat from the carb. Probably pissin' into the wind with that. Every time I look at it I realize that I will rot in hell for all eternity.

I wish I had a good way to get some rust spots off the pipes on my 350, and a way to keep it from coming back.
Someday I'll get some stainless pipes for it I guess...

I only ever use wrap on CL high pipe models, or when I am trying to hide the aftermarket header from the smog police. I do think I am going to put it on my Husqvarna though, again because I prefer the smell of BBQ to come from the pits, not my pants

Baddass!!!

send me your pipe so I can use a new process I have been wanting to try....
if it works, I'll make a video and send you some stickers :rolleyes:

or your fallback:

^ haha thanks, man, but I've been on here long enough to know better.
Not to mention that if I send you the pipes, I can't ride the bike until I get them back, lol.
I really only have a few spots that keep coming back after I clean then up, but no actual pitting yet.
I'll try to find a set that needs more work to send you, though! I am curious to what your experiment will end up being.
