exhaust tips

something a bit differant that i had done and iam very pleased with the way it turned out,

took my stock tips off and sent them to a ceramic sprayers and had them coated,
http://www.zircotec.com/page/--performance-colours-range-of-coatings-for-exhaust-tailpipes/205
some people will already know about zircotec but i thought i would post for anyone who didnt.
my experience with them was very good, customer service and process was first class. the finish is perfect they have a number of colours i picked the metallic black to match the defuser.

Hard to keep clean, no ?

My tips are black - call it the lazy option.

Good to try something different, but looks like something off a 19th century steam train

it is actually way to easy for my liking

pull towards yourself with a bit of pressure then use a rubber hammer to give it a tap you dont need to hit it hard just a tap and they come off
