Yeah i used high temp black paint... four light coats. Super easy to do

This should hold me over until better exhaust option hit the market.

I picked up some John Deere exhaust paint. It almost perfectly matches the black wheels. The JD paint is very easy to use with great results.

Sorry not a fan of the tail tidy...
@steeve , I think the plate size in the uk and other nations are simply too large to even consider sliding it under the tail like they can in the USA. Personally I prefer no limits to the rear suspension travel, my point is that the plate must be clearly visible and that will impede the suspensions travel.
We have some boneheads in my city that have there's mounted under the tail and I just don't like it. By the way I am not suggesting those that do it are boneheads. Bonehead is a pleasant slang term for dumb [email protected] where I live.

Can you post line to the paint? I wanted it to be a unified look instead of the 2 can look.
This is the method I use for a close to factory job. This paint is very easy to work with and holds up very well. Once the humidity improves in New England, i'll be painting mine.

I realise all this, its the functionality of the indicators I dislike. Like I've mentioned else where the two indicators are just to close to each other and could very easily result in confusion for our four (or more) wheeled road brethren. In the event of an accident to be found with an illegal safety signalling system wouldn't go well. I just find it risky enough on the roads as it is. Definitely a case of form over function.

But then again I'm an old fart. Who would like to get a bit older though!

How long between coats? I think 1 spray can does the the job right?

Wondering how a white end tip look, instead of having it all black?
