Stainless Steel Exhausts

Hi,

I need to replace the exhaust on my 1998 Range Rover 4.6 HSE and I want to
fit a stainless steel system. I've looked at Rimmer Bros and RPI
engineering (amongst others) and all have highly polished bling boy-racer
style tailpipes. Does anyone know of a heat resistant black paint
(preferably spray) that will adhere to polished stainless steel? Does
anyone have experience of the stainless systems from either of these
suppliers? From their website pictures they look to be identical systems.
Does anyone have any experience of the quad pipe systems?

Thanks in advance

Alan C

I put a Rimmer system on ther 4.6 RR - although the tailpipes are shiny,
there's only a couple of inches showing, and that's below bumper level.
Hardly notice it. You will need to trim the bottom edge of the bumper
though. Highly recommended.

Ow does one get a custom bent exhaust made ? My 200 Tdi project is going

You can buy pre bent tubing in various diameters and materials if you
fancy building your own.
I know a bloke currently building a 3" exhaust for a saab. I'll try
and get the details of the place he's getting his bits from. He said
they have a web page with all the available bits on

I've not dealt with Rpi for exhausts, but they were very helpful with my
Weber 500.


My 3.5 V8 has a Rimmer stainless exhaust, the product was fine, delivery
very good, but I had some trouble with a warranty claim when the middle
silencer started rattling. I rang them to see what the returns procedure was
and they explained that they don't just swap the faulty part for new one,
they collect it, repair it and deliver it back, usually within a week. Since
I was taking the gearbox out a few months later I arranged to leave it until
then to save having the vehicle off the road unnecessarily.

So, a few months later when the vehicle was off the road, I rang Rimmers who
collected it as arranged and hoped it would be back at about the same time
as the gearbox came back from the rebuilders. Sure enough, a box from
Rimmers arrived, containing a brand new silencer! I assumed my old one had
been to bad to repair and they had replaced it.

A few weeks later I received a letter from a "manager" at Rimmers containing
what I can only describe as a thorough b*llocking. (Excuse the asterisk -
if substitute it with an "o" the tiscali news server refuses to forward it!)
He explained that it was not their policy to replace faulty parts, but to
repair
them, and I should never expect this treatment again!

I wrote back complaining about the tone of the letter and its implication
that I had somehow extorted a new silencer from them, but never got a reply!

I still have no idea why they sent me a new silencer without any
explanation, and even less why they seemed to think I was wrong to accept
it!

Wow. Now how the hell do you design what you want I wonder ? Bigger
diameter = better ?
