If the plan is to paint/coat the pipes, why not consider brazing (or soldering) the letters to cover them? When you re-coat the pipe, no more letters.

So which would be better? Would soldering survive the ceramic coating process?

that's a good idea, if its a polished stainless tip you could have a pre-stamped or etched plate tacked on to cover the trd. I don't think it would look tacky as long as its fairly thin gauge, like 18 or 20.

if its chrome, that may not work so well

Yes, they are polished stainless steel. Any idea where I could get plates like that made?

I wonder if the powder/ceramic coating place could do that for me...

It honestly would be cheaper for you too just laser engrave TSS and leave the TRD just think how cool it would be to have both of them on the tips

I don't know much about ceramic coating. If I were gonna do it, I would probably braze it.

I agree, that would be cool! Who would I look for to do the laser engraving in my area? I guess google would tell me.

I think you're stuck with the TRD logo, it's fairly deep. Attempting to remove it will either remove the chrome plating or it'll just make the metal super thin.

Now for getting TSS put on there... You could try asking a machine shop, or find someone that does engraving/laser. I would start with anyone that makes trophies or plaques. I don't know if they'll work with you, but they engrave stuff all the time.

braze or silver solder. Higher melting point than lead solder.
Still not sure if its high enough for ceramic coating process.

If the tip is polished stainless, have somebody fill it with a tig torch and then sand flat with a flapper disc and polish.

well, I decided to give it a shot and just have them ceramic coated and leave the trd stamp alone. after i looked closer, the stamp was very shallow on these pipes and i thought it might not show up too much. You actually have to get pretty close to see it. Im very happy with it.

Pictures:

This is the custom BAmuffler that was built out of california by DirtyDeeds, standing against the wall:











So this Saturday Ill be doing the install. Ill get some pics of it up. I know everyone has a tacoma, but for your viewing pleasure ill post a video too.
