Gloss Black Coating for Mufflers
I am restoring a 1981 Yamaha Midnight Special motorcycle. It came with gloss black finished exhaust pipes which Yamaha no longer makes or stocks. I need to find someone to put a gloss black finish on two mufflers. I was thinking about powdercoat but, the mufflers may get too hot. I haven't been able to find anyone who could put a black chrome finish on them either. Is there a third option or does anyone know of a shop that can do this work?Fred Williams

Black chrome is not inexpensive but it can take the heat. Highland Plating offers it.
