Enhance Your Car’s Style with Custom Exhaust Tip Painting
At WRAPvehicles, we take pride in offering a comprehensive car modification service that includes even the smallest style enhancements, such as exhaust tip painting. Often overlooked, these visible exhaust tips can be colour-coded to match your car’s preferred hue, elevating the overall look of our customised luxury and sports cars.
A Spectrum of Colours
While our exhaust tip painting options may not be extensive due to the requirement of heat-resistant paint, we provide a range of main base colors to suit most vehicles, including red, blue, white, and more. However, our most popular choice remains the timeless black exhaust paint, perfect for achieving the sought-after “murdered out” style on any customised car.
Durability and Craftsmanship
Our skilled technicians carry out the exhaust painting with the parts still attached to your vehicle. By utilising heat-resistant paint, we ensure the colour remains vibrant and unaffected by the extreme heat generated during exhaust use, providing a durable and factory-like finish.
While we do offer exhaust painting as an individual modification service, opting for this enhancement alongside other modifications can be highly cost-effective. It allows you to complete your car’s transformation in one go, achieving a seamless and unified look.

Yes, you can paint your exhaust tip. Many people choose to do this to customize the appearance of their vehicle or to match it with their car’s color scheme. Make sure to use high-temperature paint specifically designed for automotive exhaust systems.
For exhaust tip painting, it’s essential to use high-temperature paint, often labeled as “exhaust paint” or “high-temperature engine enamel.” These paints can withstand the extreme heat generated by the exhaust system and prevent premature fading or peeling.
Before painting, ensure the exhaust tip is clean and free of any dirt, grease, or debris. You can use a degreaser or soapy water to clean it thoroughly. Sanding the surface lightly can also help the paint adhere better. Additionally, mask off surrounding areas to avoid overspray and protect your car’s finish.
No, exhaust dechroming is a different process from painting. Dechroming involves removing or altering the chrome finish on the exhaust tip to achieve a different look. This can be done through various methods like sandblasting, chemical stripping, or covering the chrome with a different material.
There are a few options for exhaust dechroming: – Sandblasting: This process involves using abrasive materials to remove the chrome coating from the exhaust tip. – Chemical Stripping: Some automotive shops offer chemical treatments that can dissolve the chrome layer. – Exhaust Tip Covers: You can opt for non-chrome exhaust tip covers made of materials like stainless steel, carbon fiber, or matte finishes.
Restoring the original chrome finish after dechroming is challenging. Once the chrome is removed, it typically requires re-plating, a costly and complex process. It’s essential to carefully consider your decision before proceeding with dechroming.
The primary advantage of painting or dechroming your exhaust tip is purely aesthetic, allowing you to customize the look of your vehicle. While it won’t significantly impact performance, it can enhance your car’s overall appearance and make it stand out.
In most cases, exhaust tip painting or dechroming is considered a cosmetic modification and should not void your vehicle’s warranty. However, it’s always best to check with your car’s manufacturer or dealership to confirm if it aligns with their warranty policies.
