Ok i just bought some extractors and a sports exhaust now i am bummed out that the Extractors look in bad condition and are Wildcat when i was told they were pacemaker 4499's. The exhaust i was told was only 2 Hot dogs but when i received it today it looks different. Also the extractors have a dent in them in the following pictures.

I have various other questions which are

How do i go about re-Painting the Extractors?
What are the parts on my exhaust and what should i except from it?
Will that dent affect performance?

If it was me I would get the extractors get them sandblasted and then paint them blue or red or something like that to help tidy it up.

Yeah id go with froudey's advice mate, get the extractors grit blasted to remove the rusting and get them painted in high temp paint IF you want to keep them. I dont really think the dent would make much of noticeable difference at all imo but it would obstruct the flow a tad bit. If you could save up a bit, i wouldnt waste the money on them, id rather buy a set of proper 4499's or 4480's second hand off someone on here in good condition, they seem to pop up in the for sale from time to time. Those extractors also have press bent pipes so the bends are slightly pushed in a bit, pacemaker ones are mandrel bent which is better as they dont have any indents in the bends so they are all the same size through out the bends.

As for the parts on the exhaust, you've obviously got the cat up front then a hotdog by the looks of it and the main centre muffler. Cant really tell from the pics but is there anything else after the muffler at all on the rear part of the exhaust which goes over the diff or is it just straight pipe onwards?

Nothing else on the pipe after the center muffler, would there be much difference between the Wildcat Extractors i have and the Pacemakers paired with my Exhaust? Also do you think my exhaust would be any good? Even Loud ?

Don't bother changing until you run out of other stuff....better off spending the money on a cam for the gain you will receive.

Got the drill and some steel brushes and it looks 100% better except for the bits i could not reach so from this point on i may just hit it with some kill rust and spray some engine enamel on it ! Does it sound like a good plan?

killrust and engine enamel will burn off pretty quick.toxic fumes too. u need to spray them with extractor paint, vht brand or septone brand from sprints, autobarn etc. if u want it to last i would have them bead blasted first, will help the paint stick (costs around $20 from motorbike shop)

The stuff i had at home "destroys old rust & prevents new rust" it also act as a primer this is what it looked like on the 2nd coat by when its all done i will post a picture up because the results are unbelievable

i got the same extractors and exhaust (brand new) there preety good. But be careful with the Cat cause you can loose power from dat if its not good enough condition. my old one would make noises everytime id take off which is a sign that you need to change it. watch out for them unhealthy sounds!

If you dont mind me asking how much did you pay for each item brand new ?
So your extractors are Wildcat "21 SS" (i think thats what mine are)

Also how much of a difference in power did you notice compared to the stock ones ?

alot more then yours probably did in price lol. But the extrators are actually pacemakers, they look exactly the same as yours but in baby blue.

Extractors: $410
Exhaust and cat installed my liverpool exhaust: $650
problem was that pacemaker exhausts come to low for falcons so they had to get a custom adapter made and charged me for installing the extractors 2. even though the extractors were cheaper than the huricane ones they supply, the end result would of been cheaper just to get it all done with them.

In terms of power i dident notice any top end as the way bac was on a high way. but try this... put it in first, drive slow up to 2 and half thousands revs and then hit it to the ground. thats where i found all my power.

Get a cam as well. it helps.
