I didn't think that they were glass packs. I've had a number of them which 
eventually rusted apart and I've never noticed any glass in them, but by that 
time you wouldn't expect to, regardless.

Will the POR-20 take the heat? It would be nice to come up with a treatment 
that could be used on OEM mufflers, too. BTW, the OEM damper pipes DO have 
glass in them.

What's your impression on exhaust rust in the midwest: Is it mostly from the 
inside or the outside? I think the California situation is quite a bit 
different from ours.
