Painting headers??? Jet hot or eastwood???

I am going to put headers on my jeep and i was thinking about coating them. Does anyone know how much jet hot is?? I am trying to decide either to send them out or buy header paint from Eastwood Co. Also Do i paint them before i get the collectors welded or after??
Thank you for any input.

Eastwood is low cost but only last about 2-years on a hot rod. Jet hot will be about 100-dollars and you have to send it to them. Eastwood is done by you and you can put as many coats as you like. It looks ok but not real sharp. It stinks for the first couple of times you run it and it smells like it would be toxic. Hope this helps some.

Jet Hot is awsome! I've had it on race car and street car headers, and it WON'T burn off or blue! If it doesent blue on a drag car I don't think it will ever blue or burn on a Jeep. You will be happy with it.
