Avoiding exhaust stains


Be the first to comment

What is the issue?
Black exhaust stains tend to build up beneath the exhaust outlet.

Why address this?
The exhaust stains look bad and it takes significant elbow grease to remove it each season.

How to address this?
Invest in an exhaust outlet that with an extended pipe, or have one added to the existing system - see figures 1 to 3.

The extended pipe carries the exhaust out and away from the gel coat dramatically reducing the build up.
