Here it is. All of the spots you see on the pipe are from the millions of times that it has rusted really bad before despite the constant WD-40 bath it received. For some reason the spots show up more with the flash.
I've ridden in the snow a bit with it and it has held up well.

thanks guys for the pics.....
joka, thats one sweet ass zook.

hey studboy, i can't get your photo's to work. i tried coating the endcap of my silencer (cause i stripped it too) and it has that wet look. so as soon as i finish cleaning the welds on the pipe, i'm coating it so i don't have to polish like you mentioned all the time. i think it'll look alright.

thanks for the info guys!!! :thumb:

studboy - its a 2004 with about 5 hours on it, thats why it still looks brand new..

where can i get this clear coat paint and how much does it cost? can i buy a no-name or standard clear coat at canadian tire or something similar?

oh yeah, is it possible to grind down the welds on the pipe? they look sheety

I used duplicolor engine clear coat with ceramic. You can buy it at just about any auto parts store here. It was ~$3 for a can, which is enough to do your pipe at least two or three times. I'm sure that you could grind them a bit, but personally I wouldn't go through the hassle.
