did my Tzr with rattle cans and it came out really good, loads of primer, like 5 coats of loss black and 5 coats of clear stuff to protect it

Yep, came out really good and with all the clear coat never got marked or anything, just using the halfords stuff. Cheap and i think for a standard colour black comes out just as good as powdercoating.

does look ok, but not that glossy? how much prep did you put into the frame? i want a proper deep gloss on the frame and swingarm as there constantly on show and i want the bike to be mint.

Pics dont show it up as good as it was. Gelled the rust bits then sanded rust bits back to metal, primed and painted

ill give it a shot with poundland paint, but for the price of aerosols from halfrauds i can get half a litre of gloss black cellulose and laquer for that

Dont bother to much with polishing the exhaust, its not gonna stay nice for long with out any coating on it, best to make it rust free and spray it with heat resistan black or clearcoat, or have it chromed.

Yeah I agree however you'll struggle to find a local place that will chrome a used exhaust. If you do find somewhere, it'll cost a silly amount.

Where does the tuning come into it Billy lol? What have you got planned.

Its called Visual Tuning or Visual Styling.

Anyway, If your gona sell it just give the exhaust a few layers of heat resistand clearcoat mate, than the pipe still looks nice and it doesnt rust away with in a week or so.

oh my bad, clearly wasnt reading it right, up to the new owner if they want to do that, i will buy a can and offer it for them, but it dulls it down quite alot.

Well if you dont do it after a week or so the pipe will be much duller from rust :P
And if it starts to rust its verry hard to get rid of it since its basicly just bare polished steel now.
Your pipe is really nice and shiny know, so i would put a thin coat on, but make sure you get it everywhere.
It wont dull it much, pipes that you buy in the shop with clearcoat on them where not as silver as yours is to start with.
