How do you guys think the riviera would look with a set of turndown slant cut exhaust tips ? I have a set of 2.5" stainless steel dynomax mufflers with integrated tips I was planning on using on my roadmaster, but got something else instead.

Honestly, I think it'd look old. Turned down went out of style a while ago, and now you only see it on trucks. It won't look bad, just not new.

you have to saw them off with a metal wheel. also i spray painted mine silver/chrome for awhile just to see how it would look. the paint last for a few months before you have to respray, but if your going to cut them and weld up new ones anyways, it only costs about $4 for the paint.
post some pics once you find some tips and get em on smile

duplicolor "chrome". you can find it at wallmart or autozone or almost anywhere thet has spray paint. its not high temp, just regular paint. i roughed up the metal first with some steel wool and used brake cleaner to get rid of the dirt. it doesnt have to be perfect.
here is an old pic of mine after they were painted. it even holds up to washings.

Make sure the tips are clean before you paint.

The high-temp paint is made for engine and manifold parts, pieces that get really hot, but wouldn't hurt to use it on the tips.

You know, you can pick up some chrome tips for about $20 a piece. They'll cut your old ones off and weld the new on in about 15 minutes.

If you check around, I think you could get them chromed or electroplated.
