Default Fixed rust & painted the mufflers...

Hey hey hey! Soo one of my recent project was to fix the rust behind my headlights & to paint my mufflers black before the show on last Saturday (pic thread soon to come). So yeah after hours upon hours of detailing my car after working 7-3 earlier that day, I finally did it.
I can't find any before pics at the moment from the lil bit of rust developing behind the headlights but I got a couple after pics while the spots were drying...first I popped the headlights out & took a pic of it bcuz I thought it looked funny lol busted my knuckle open trying to get one of the headlight brackets off. Hurt like hell & is still kinda bruised.

Used rust converter for now...eventually I may get back there & paint it black to match the car but no one really sees that so I'm not worried about it at the moment
