It's a pity you are so far away from me,I have a brand new W108 4.5 Muffler that came with a 6.3 i have ,it's never been used and it would be free. I can't stand the souind of Stainless exhuasts with their tinny sound,so I use the steel mufflers whether Genuine parts or otherwise.Before I fit the mufflers I always do this.....
I buy a liter or two of POR15 black anti rust paint.
I block the ends of the muffler with duct tape and pour the paint into the muffler and then block the other ends ,then with the help of an assistant I rotate the muffler in any and every direction until I think I have completely covred the inside of the muffler.
I then hang the muffler from the ceiling rafter ( or engine crane) and let the excess paint run into a paint roller tray.
This excess is then used to paint the outside of the muffler and coat the insides of the pipes although it's not all that neccesary.
POR 15 won't burn because it has a temp rating far beyond the temp any muffler will reach.
I have had mufflers last for 4 years ( i have only been doing this for this period....) and thats a lot longer than I would expect a mild steel muffler to last on a merc.
