    Default Exhaust paint, do I need to lacquer??

    No pics yet, but I have painted my exhausts in a heat resistant black paint, but will I need to laquer them?

    Sorry Paul I'm not taking the pee really but why on Earth would you want to paint them anyway? - Just having a laugh mate!

    But being a bit more serious, I doubt that you'd need to lacquer them. The heat resisitant paint is one thing, but adding lacquer on top of that, you may well find that the lacquer isn't anywhere near as heat resisitant. Only guessing of course.

    Cheers

    Don't add a laquer as it will craze from the heat eventually. Seen cars and how the laquer peels off them? Thats just from the body work being in the sun. Heat resitant paint is excatly that laquer has none of those properties.
