Re: Ehxaust Manifold paint

Several years ago we had a set of headers coated with something that looked like a silver powder coat, and it has held up beautifully. It never was as shiny as chrome, but it hasn't discolored or dulled or anything. I'll try to find out where it was done.

Another option; a stove factory will be able to enamel a manifold for you. A lot of the high end manufacturers, like Jaguar, Packard and Deusenberg used to enamel the exhaust manifolds. It's exceedingly durable.

For paint that you can put on yourself, I've used barbecue grill paint. It lasts a while. Then it goes away.

Re: Ehxaust Manifold paint

Eastwood companies makes some that is supposed to last. I was going to try it but have not yet. If you do let us all know how it works. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Then search on manifold paint in upper left.

Hope it works.

Another guy who helped build the Cobra says that, at the time it was done, about five years ago, it was called Jet Coat, but he also thinks that it was just a silver-colored powder coat.

I can probably find out for sure in a day or two.

Re: Ehxaust Manifold paint

The Jet coat you all are talkin about is probably ceramic coating or cerama-coat. I don't know very much about it, just that it is supposed to last forever, most major header manufacturers offer it as an option. I bought a pair of Hooker Super Comp headers with the coating for a '66 chevyII I was buildin up. I ended up sellin the car before finishing it, so I have a nice pair of headers on a 350 in my garage. I must say they've held up nice inside the engine bag [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img] Hopefully someone else can give you all more info

Re: Ehxaust Manifold paint

That makes sense to me. I think that powder coat is baked at around 600*, and an exhaust manifold is going to get a lot hotter than that. I'll see if I can find out in the next day or two.
