    Default Stock Exhaust Manifold Coating

    Hi, my first post here. I just Al. Oxide blasted a pair of stock Ford 260 exhaust manifolds. Any suggestions what is the closest powder to original "finish"? I just purchased a PC gun, and this will be my first project. Thanks!

    I would look at one of the 'cast iron' powders.

    I'm pretty sure that even the high-temp powder is not going to hold up very long on exhaust manifolds. I would recommend ceramic coating for exhaust manifolds or headers applications. Welcome to the forum by the way.

    Best of luck.

    Actually, the 1000 F. hi-temp powders do very well on heavy, stock type c.i. manifolds. I've got several sets out there and nobody is squeakin' yet

    Hi-temps will never survive on tube headers or shorty's - for that, you do need ceramic.

    Default Thanks for the info

    In this application, would other Eastwood products be a better application for appearance and durability? I want to have them as stock appearing as possible, but don't want them to return to the rust look. This car will be driven to weekend shows.

    Well, CPC-2 knows his stuff so I'd probably take his word for it and gamble on the 1000 deg hi-temp. Just follow the instructions exactly. Any variation from the recommended steps will compromise the durability.

    Best of luck.

    If you're buildng a chalkmark car, then yes, there are other products that will get you damb near spot on to the factory look when new. Look around on the EW site, they have a lot of brush-on & spray-on exhaust coatings that might fit the bill. I haven't personally used any of them, so I can't say how they hold up.
