Shiny tailpipe suggestions

Good afternoon,
I was just wondering if anyone ever tossed on a chrome or stainless extension on their tailpipe to make it look nicer. I just have a standard exhaust but the rust color obviously doesn't look the nice next to the chrome bummer. Anyone have anything they like to use that slides right over the rusted end to covers it. Something simple that does not look like some kind of fast and the furious Subaru exhaust.
Thank you.
Shawn

That tailpipe looks like it’s on it’s last leg. I like to paint anything from the frame down, suspension, shocks, whatever...I paint it semi gloss or chassis black.

I do this on all my vehicles. I just think it looks clean that way.

would think about any pep boys would have something that can be bolted on. You may have to cut it back a bit. Matter of measuring what you got and getting a bolt on tip.

You can cut the pipe and weld them on or go ricer and screw something over your exhaust. Alunium high temperature paint is another, my exhaust guy dabs it on from a big bucket for free to hide the rust.

A new tailpipe may be the same cost as a chrome tip add-on. Cut it to length and make another angle cut at the bottom for that factory look.
