Default Is there away to fix it?

So in September I went down on the bike. Now the exhaust muffler has some good scratches all over it. Is there away to repair them? I thought almost seeing if somebody could wrap it in cf or would that melt off? Curious on ideas.

most aftermarket companies sell replacement exhaust sleeves, you just have to do the work of drilling out rivets and re-doing it.

Your one step ahead of me. I thought about the cf wrap but can it handle the heat? Were would you send it off to get it done? Can't think of any were cheap.

Here is a picture:
