    Its the cheaper stainless that still corrodes sp*
    Im sure most of the people i know who make pipework up would be able to suply a higher grade that doesnt look lik its rusting.

    If this is so...
    why do the tailpipes on my exhaust only ever need a wipe with a sponge after i wash the car? no mad buffing or autosol needed

    sorry mate not looking to argue the case just thinking of this chaps pocket and the obvious choice for me would be spend 10 on powdercoating than spending 30+ on new pipes.. i know which i'd rather do and i'm no corner cutter...

    I wasnt looking to argue either. Didnt mean it that way,
    I was just thinking... If the guy was looking towards carbon fiber... he has deeper pockets than me ! With the way his car and front end looks now i think looking at what grade stainless say milltek use and having a ring round to see who can suply that grade in the bend he wants would keep him happy?
