    Hmm, interesting. What do you mean "dulled up"? Have not heard of other accounts of this. The NASIOC member I met up with to hear his Nameless setup had his on for over two years and it looked great, even poking my head under the car the piping and welds looked clean, and that's in WA where they are constantly exposed to moisture and the occasional snow.

    I got 3.5" Single Wall tips and the edges of the tips are actually starting to rust/discolor a little. Only a month old. I've heard it should polish right off but I haven't tried it yet. I've only heard of this on single wall though, supposedly the double wall holds up better. Just got the mid-pipe installed today and there isn't a big difference in sound between the axleback and the whole catback, I have 4" mufflers. Overall though I'm glad I went with the Nameless.

    Zitro, basically the same thing Ray is talking about here. They just lose their color very fast and easily. I can't speak for every system they make, but for my own experience it was a very "high maintenance" exhaust. Lots of steel wool and Eagle1 NeverDull had to be used to keep it from looking like a cheap mild steel piece from a garage in a hurry.

    Hmm...interesting. Hopefully I don't have that experience. We'll see. I've read some issues on pretty much all exhausts in some way, but Nameless has been overwhelmingly positive.
