Also, last weekend I painted the exhaust trims as they were never cleaned before (I think) and they were rusted and very bad looking.

I cleaned them as good as I could and then painted with mate black high temp paint. After 4 layers I cooked them in the oven for 1.5 hours and then applied transparent and cooked again for another 1.5

Here you can see some pics of the process.

1. Applying color



2. Here to the oven



3. The finished product, the pic is actually very bad, but they don't look bad at all, much like a 135i exhaust. I will try to take better pics of the exhaust as soon as I can.
