I was convinced mine were shot .My buddy said take them off and sand blast them you may be surprised at how thick of a layer of rust will form from a thin layer of base metal.He was totally correct after blasting them they looked like new.I painted them with por15 exhaust manifold paint then a coat of por15 engine paint it has held up real well this summer. It cost ~$100 for new bolts ,fittings,gaskets and paint.Im sure glad I looked at them before I ordered new ones like I was about to do,I think it was going to be ~$450 for a new set.
