Imho exhaust wrap looks crap, I've heard of pipes cracking with the extra heat build up. Can't understand why peeps do it, unless you've had a spill and dented one.Ceramic coating is durable so long as a reputable firm does it.
I tend to agree - wrapped pipes, to me, say "rat bike" - they detract from the classy look of the GRiSO. Steak should chime in here - his first GRiSO had matte gray ceramic coated headers, and it looked sweet against the silver frame of his black 1100. I don't mind a bit of bluing or bronzing.

And I'm surprised and amazed at how well those rusty pipes on the Tenni turned out after the buffing. Wow!

You can do all of that work or you can tape some plastic bags around the engine for masking, spray the pipes with Optiglanz, wait 5 minutes then wash it off.

You might have to buff a little with some wax or WD50 after your done but that's about it.

George, how long do you recommend that one warm up the engine before putting on the plastic bags?

No warming required Bill as the stuff (Optiglanz) is the bomb. And sorry it was WD40 or ACF-50 I was talking about. I sort of combined them I guess.

After using Optiglanz you should also use Autosol Antiblau for a finish with great results. Awesome, I swear!
