I painted my Calipers, Drums and Muffler. The Muffler awaits its tip which is somewhere between Fort Worth and Big Bend right now. I will put a second coat of paint on everything on my days off Thurs/Fri and install the tip. It should look as below. The picture caption claimed it might not be exact. It's a 2 3/4" slant outlet and I hope it has the rolled end! I tried putting a dual tip on and it didn't work out. I have already decided to put dual exhaust from the cat back. Probably with Flowmaster 50's or 60's. Whichever is quieter.

I'm liking where your going with the tip. I had troubles with the "bolt on" working its way off. So we found a solution.

Thanks! Actually, I tried using a dual tip. My friend was going to weld it on but he couldn't get his welder going. Funny you should mention the intake silencer. I had mine off tonight. It made my gurgling sound louder through the hole in the box and didn't seem to be very restrictive so, I put it back on. I might just put on a cone filter. Yeah, I know it will take hot air but the dang air box seems to amplify that dang gurgling! I wish I could get to the bottom of that.

If it comes off the muffler, no big deal. I think it'll be ok on the drums and calipers.[/b]
Actually, you'd be surprised at the amount of heat that the drums and calipers get in them. If you didn't use high temp paint, I give those brake components less than three months before that's all baked off.

I just used the dupi-color brake caliper kit. It's a gloss high temp black that is MADE to go on calipers. :)
