LTA Vehicle Inspection

Shouldn't fail since you don't involve welding. But honestly I doubt painting high temp paint will last - mine just evaporate off no matters how many times or how many layers I apply.

 

Also, i would prefer not to respray the entire header if the original paintwork is still there. New paintwork will eat into the old paintwork, resulting even those used to be ok portions to lose their paint and start rusting.

 

Now mine just leave it to rust. Rust still ok for me, as long as it dun corrode.

 

I also tried spraying the header, end up releasing fumes when it gets hot even though its a high heat spray. I guess the only way is ceramic coating.

 

Can try those rust remover but the rust will surely come back. Alternatively can get heat shield and hide the rust. Aliexpress sells a 0.6m length for USD20 with free shipping, no idea on the quality.

Thanks for your replies guys!

 

I bought those hammerite rust to paint thing, i think i got those 'hammered silver metallic' colour to paint a small patch to cover one rusted patch. Went to copper brush the rust area first before applying. I think it looks okay with my 'dulled down chrome' exhaust header.

 

So far, i have let the paint cure and when i ride, no smoke nothing. Its like normal only. Maybe YBR exhaust header not as hot as your bikes! I feel like painting the entire header cause i think the look is quite nice but im not too sure whether can pass inspection. Im just afraid the thing will rust further and corrode, leaving a hole in my header. I dont really care about the look, as long can ride, can already! :D
