Take them off, take them to a powder coated and have the do as far INSIDE the pipe as the can at the tip, or do it your self with black high temp exhaust paint. Either way, have the interior sand blasted to pit or remove the cheap chrome so the powder or paint will stick better.

That is my suggestion, best of luck !

Pull the tubes and re-chrome them.

I have a set of new Patriots to be installed. I've been thinking of having them blasted and ceramic coated before I even bother installing them.

That ceramic coating just might be the answer for a long lasting and durable finish … but once again .. $$$$ frown
