How to go about paintwork

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by banditbob, Dec 27, 2006.

  1. My yamy zeal has faded chrome along the end of its exhaust and has become a sickly yellow colour.

    What would be the best way to repaint the exhaust?

    Strip the entire existing coat and repaint with chrome spray paint?

    What might a shop charge for somn like this?
  2. as far as i know u cant repaint chrome urself.

    u would have to sandblast the part and get it to a powder coating place where they would dunk it in chrome solution then bake it.

    U can get that chrome in a can stuff but it looks like shit an comes off easy
  3. Chrome plating does not typically yellow with age sure it goes rusty etc are you sure it is chrome is it the original muffler ??????

    Yellow tarnish typically sounds like stainless steel

    Have you tried to polish it with some autoslol metal polisihing paste?????

    Thats what i would do first

    Good Luck
