I protected the bumper when painting the piping going to the exhaust tips (and the tips themselves), but for the muffler and shield I didnt bother

Check your local fireplace shop there is a wood stove paint ( Stove Bright ) that is rated for 1200 degrees .
It comes in an assortment of colors if you are inclined to match your vehicle . I am sticking with black .
Here is a link for it .

Ok hold the phone! Is that an Sidi Nox? I thought that the new body style did not come in a duel exhaust? That's why my eye is on the Edge Sport.

Hey everyone who has painted their muffler, how has the paint held up this far?

I believe as long as you get the 3.0L you get the dual exhaust.

My LTZ 3.0L has dual exhaust

Mine is dual exhaust too! The exhaust sounds pretty good too! I am reminded of the sound of some of those Infinities.

If you use engine paint it will hold up pretty well. I would imagine wiping it down with acetone would be helpful as well as painting it while it is cool.

I would have to agree, the Exhaust does have a nice throaty note to it. I think the LTZ is pretty sporty, As long as you get the chrome appearance package too i think it looks great. I also added a nice Chrome Grille insert i found on Ebay that keeps the same honeycomb look. I think the only other thing that would make it more sporty would be a nice turbo. HAHA but i know i'm dreaming there.
