An added plus is if you use new conduit the galvanized coating will take a nice shine with a little work on the buffing wheel and some compound. Napa sells a silver high temp engine rattle can paint that will withstand the exhaust heat even right at the cylinder/flange.
Here's a couple of pipes to give you an idea of what's possible.
hey thanks 2Door, Do u ow if they carry that high temp paint in a flat or satin blk?
