Powder coating cat?

So the title is basically my question, I'm getting a slip on soon just waiting for it to arrive and I plan to PC the mid pipe & removing the ugly heat shield and that leaves the ugly cat exposed and it looks weird if the midpo people is black then the cat it's normal color so I was wondering if it's okay to PC the cat? I've looked around but found no definitive answers, is removing it simple? Idk much about the exhaust so any help is appreciated! Thanks!

You would need to cut it off the rest of the exhaust. And if you're cutting it off anyway...

Oh wow thanks for the links! Very useful and I may get them later when I have a bit more cash, since I can't PC the cat my question now is, could I just mask off everything else but the cat and just spray it with some high temp black paint?

You could spray it with high temp paint no problem.. Honestly it would look great if you it it with steal wool and metal polish. cleans it up so it doesnt look all rust and u get a rainbow color kinda.

You would need to jet coat not pc. PC actually will not hold up to extremely high temps

I used scotchbrite and autosol to bring mine up to a decent shine which looked a lot better than before. I've now cut it out all together and gone with the replacement pipe linked above.

Does this pipe get rid of the servo flapper as well or just the cat?

Just cat. The valve remains.
