Been restoring a 1971 CL350 K3 and am slowly in the process of reassembling everything, which is very exciting. Still missing some stuff though and the exhaust is one of the items. I can't seem to find many options when it comes to aftermarket exhaust (scrambler style), and most used parts on eBay are rusty and have holes in them. Not too eager to deal with that at the moment (unless it's not as big of a deal as I think). However, I have found one listing for the exhaust that seems to be in really good shape, but they say that some of it has been painted to prevent more rust. Not sure if this is is okay to do or will cause problems in the future? I really like the original exhaust and have heard it's hard to find these things in good shape these days. Just looking for some advice on what the smartest choice would be. Is buying the painted exhaust a bad idea? Would it be better to wait and try to find something in better shape? Spend a bunch more money on a custom piece? Any advice would be great!
