Use a high temp paint. They sell stuff at places like lowes and homedepot that's for painting gas grills. That's the stuff I use. Works well. And yes, take all the rust off or as much as you can. Wipe down with paint thinner or lacquer thinner to remove any oils or grease
Locally at TSC (Tractor Supply Co) they have 1200F for grills and 2000F paint for exhaust systems. Since the muffler does not get as hot the 1200 may be OK but I prefer the 2000F degree paint for the same price. It all smokes on the burn off.
Well I do not know!
At the time I read his question, you had not posted your response yet. You did however post it while I was typing mine. If yours had been posted I would not have even responded, because you had already supplied a good solution.
John Deere Muffler paint the best there is, we use it on the race sleds and have temps of 1500 degree's allot more then a ATV will ever have and it stands up
and as far as the rust clean it good and run a 3m pad ovr it
Mine looked fugly too, so i tried this from harbor freights RustOleum 12 Oz. Rust Reformer Spray (Item #67970 $5.99) then let it dry and put this on: High Temperature Paint Spray - 12 Oz., Flat Black (Item #60781 $3.99), the first product makes it really easy to apply the second without any elbow grease-EZ and cheap! I like the flat look myself for exhaust. I use this on the whole exhaust pipe and any other black item needing some paint on the quad. News it up... :cowboy:
