Question:

stainless steel coating?

hello, just wondering if there is such a thing as a stainless steel coating for my aluminum muffler prior to installation. Yes, i suppose you can say that im cutting corners, but my current finances wont allow me to pay full price for a stainless steel one, thnx

Answer:

No stainless steel, I'm afraid, but there is an aerosol spray that a lot of welders use . It's a galvanic spray compound to coat weld joints to keep from rusting. It's silver in color, and my add a little 'pop' that it seems you are looking for. Also heat tolerant, and can be re-applied. Most welding supply stores carry this item, and look to pay around $12 a can. Good luck!

No, it's not possible. Quite apart from the chemistry which would prevent it occurring, the aluminium has a far greater rate of thermal expansion than stainless steel, so any coating wouldn't last.

No, cheap parts or expensive parts are your choices. The cheap ones...you hope they last long enough for you to get a new car before they wear out.
