Well my first mod is in the books. I added this nice black MBRP exhaust tip to cover up the bazooka tube. I ran this on my last Duramax and it held up well. Just sprayed it with some VHT paint to freshen it up every once in a while.

I'm not really done yet, I need to trim about 3 or 4 inches from bazooka tube so you don't see it. Then I plan to spray the exhaust tube and heat shield with some matte black VHT paint so I don't have to look at that discolered aluminum shit for the next 5 years.

Got her painted with some matte black VHT header paint. Pulled the heat shield, madked off the shock, wiped it down twice with acetone. Hit it with one light coat and two medium coats. Takes about two cans exactly to get a good coat on pipe and heat shield.

Still heating up the heat shield with heat gun to cure paint. Exhaust pipe will cure when running it.

Looks great, GM should consult with me before they pump out this crap! Before and after pics.

Very nice. I guess you could also have gotten it powder coated or a Duracoat kit they sell to do guns. https://duracoatfirearmfinishes.com/duracoat-beginners-kit
