No recommendations on high temp paint? Or do I need to go get them super sicky ceramic coated... along with x-pipe to help keep temps down outside by AC condenser, cooler, and fuel cell. This is DR... i have to be doing it wrong with paint.

Took another few hours on Monday to finish the other side exhaust exit... and on Tue I spent an hour on tabs for lunch

VHT paint SP101

We use it to paint our booms for our solar arrays. Black is available too.

i wouldnt paint it. put a heat shield by the fuel tank or use DEI heat wrap on the exhaust.

painting exhaust never seems to hold up well no matter what you use. moment rust gets under ceramic coating, shit pops off like acme on a fat kid

gonna do VHT. When it gets fooked... I will sand and repaint like the rest

lunch time fab yesterday. finished other side and welded tabs on exhaust. Put truck at full bump. man... barely clears the upper links. Like only 3/16". I tried to keep it away from cell as much as possible...but, I thought I had a little more space. Gonna go ahead and weld tabs on chassis next. Not sure it will be an issue... but we will find out. In like a year or so. haha.



still need to take a lunch today....really need to disassemble front shocks to do ressy conversion. Maybe I will start that.
