The grill is red. They did not change it to white until sometime in '56. I don't know what color the exhaust should be but I would just paint it heat treated aluminum.

The typical color for the underslung exhaust is "surface rust" or "oxidize black."
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

The exhaust pipe was painted with the tractor, the muffler was put after the paint booth. The paint would burn off of the manifold and exhaust pipe after a bit of use. I fyou look at original tractors the manifold is still painted on the intake and the paint is burnedd off on the exhaust side.
