Rusty exaust pipe

Before the cold realy sets in this year, I want to paint my rusty exhaust pipe. What paint would be suitable ?


And what are the steps in preparing it for paint. (I want to use a brush application paint as I don't want to get any paint on the fairings by spraying.) I also don't want the hassle of removing it from the scooter.

Yeh

Yeh I use wd40 soaked rag every week when I clean her. The rust had already set in and I want to repaint the exaust whilst the sun is still shining and before the realy bad weather sets in. I wasn't going to bothered I was planing on getting a 125cc but decided to stick with my 50 as I can rea warent her for another year at£100.  Any tips on painting mate?

Regards ash :smile

Can't help with any painting

but ACf50 is far better than WD40 although don't overdo it.  It's quite expensive and a little goes a long way, but it will stop anymore corrosion.

 

Wont the rust polish of with autosol and a bit of elbow grease?

Yes

Yes it probably will but I want to make it look like new. I'm the only 16 year old kid on my street who actually try's to take care of my moped.

Ask

at your local dealer what they suggest but obviously any paint you use would have to be able to cope with hight temps, all grease will have to be removed etc.

Peeps on here would have a better knowledge on this than I would.

 

But once all rust is removed look into getting a tub of the ACF50, it's liquid gold and well worth it especially living by the sea
