It may or may not melt. You'd probably have to do some research on the rubber they use and the temperatures the exhaust gets up too.

I'd ask line-x on their opinion of the idea.

linex and most bedliners is just a tar like substance untill it dries, and im sure its not able to handle that kind of heat...

Why not use the POR 15 hi temp paint? I hear it does pretty well and there is some different colors to chose from. My 2 cents.

Heres a look at my ATV muffler, i did the whole exhaust, but no pics of it....It was black.....then it was rusted as HELL .....i mean covered in old mud that wouldnt come off, and crap.....sanded like 10% of it....and sprayed it down with that paint and it gets HOT but hasnt peeled, cracked, or looked like crap......

High temp paint still ends up cracking and flaking off, i did it to my 1st car's exhaust and looked like crap.....


This stuff is made from something else...

Well as you can see from that picture, i just rebuilt my quad, had all the plastics off, painted the bottom with bedliner to clean it up and make clean up easier....painted the exhaust and rims, and also painted other stuff with that heated exhaust stuff to make it match

@ boiling temp. the bedliner will start to give. Had this question come up with a customer here at the shop, did a lil research on it. Sounds like the BBQ paint would be the way to go!
