Question rusty exhaust need advice

hey guys, first off, i just want to post a quick thanks to Kris, KC, and all the other crazy NE people that showed up in their ****ed up weather at the meet.

anyway,

my cat-back i bought last summer is starting to rust, i took it off multiple times to clean it up and paint it with temp resistant paint, but the NE weather is not helping and it keeps coming back.

i need advice on whether i should sale it now and get a SS, or wait for it to fall in pieces and then get a new one?

i really like this unit, sounds awesome, and looks stock!!

thanks for the help.

Is the muffler itself rusted?

Rust on the outside isn't going to hurt it for a long time. I thought the New England creed was "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". I noticed my 01 looks really rusty. Sort of surprised me....I assumed that it was a low level SS like Mustangs...but obviously is not.

Then just take it to an exhaust shop. Have them re-use the muffler but mate it to some new 2.5" SS piping and make some new flanges.

What kind of exhaust is it that rusts after 10 months? See if they have some kind of warantee.
