Default Internal Exhaust Rust Prevention

So I should have the whole stock 79 Sportster exhaust system soon. Because some of the pipes are really rare and I know one of them already has some internal rusting, I was looking to try to coat the inside with some kind of rust treatment or coating. But, because of the heat of the exhaust, I know a lot of things would just burn or melt off.

Anybody done that before and had success with any particular products?

My dad back in the day said he use to take high heat paint & shoot it down his pipes till it was running out the other side. I'd say that was on the 60's.

Maybe coat the inside with 2-stroke oil. Just a thought as I've never seen a rusted exhaust on a 2-stroke.

have fun with that one
things just wear out
ceramic coating would be the ticket
i cannot recall any exh i have seen with ceramic done on the inside also, so call a coater and see what gives
oh, do let us know, perhaps your foot work will benefit others

Yes, ceramic coating is the way to go and Yes, it can be coated inside also.
I have done it to my exhausts in UK. www.camcoat.com

Ceramic Coating the inside is a very good idea.
We do it all the time on turbo and blower cars because of heat under the hood.
It really does help. Plus they stay nice looking

Jet Hot Coatings can sandblast and coat the inside with a high temp ceramic coating. They did a header for me about 10 years ago using the Sterling Silver finish and the cost was $360.
