I can't believe the Exhaust Shield melted
I decided I wanted to paint the Exhaust Shield on my Wee black like some other folks did. I sanded it with 220 Grit and put on a few coates of PJ1 Hi-Temp Flat Black. I decided I'd bake it at 300 for a bit to cure it a liitle better as the paint can recommended 600 Deg. I knew 600 Deg was too much for plastic and the paint is for steel anyway. Well after about 20 minutes at 300 in my oven the damn thing melted in the middle and started to sag. It looks like dog shit now.
Anyway, I learned my lesson and I figure I'd pass it on to others so they don't make the same mistake I did.
Based upon the bubbling on both sides where it melted it appears there is a thin layer of heat resistant film on it. Obviously it's not resistant enough. 300 DEGREES! :x
BTW, any of you folks with and aftermarket exhaust want to part with a heat shield for real cheap?
