    throw some aluminum fence paint on it and i'll shine forever. just take the muffler off, brush it on. one coat only then let it dry over night. when you put the muffler back on it'll smoke a lil and smell funny, but after about 5 minutes it'll go away and just stay shiny :)

    Now ya just need some degreaser on the rest of the mower to make it all look as good as the muffler! :)

    How long ago did you paint it? I'm wondering how long it holds up to the heat.

    hmm...about 3 weeks and its been used about 5-8 hours i think...maybe more? i cant really remember.
