Advice on new ST exhaust.

Assuming I get the exhaust off of my R80ST ( see my other posting asking for help! ) I am thinking of a couple of options and would appreciate any feedback.

The exhaust is in farly good shape but could use re-chroming. Am I asking for trouble by getting everything chromed such as potential peeling and flacking? I know the first few inches of the exhaust pipes where they slide into the heads must not be chromed or they won't fit.

I've read posts where riders have had their exhaust ceramic coated but know nothing of the process, costs, benifits, etc. Is ceramic coating a good upgrade?

Finally, I've though of a new exhaust system, one that would get rid of the collector box. What are my options and again, what's the upside? How expensive?

Thanks!
