I found this nice artical in there forum about do it yourself ceramic high temp header coating. If you dont have the big money for the Jet Hot coating this a lower cost way and looks good. I thought I would share this with you maybe get some ideas from it

I've coated many headers, pistons, combustion chambers with coatings from www.techlinecoatings.net

PS- They just changed their website and it sucks...A LOT.

The fact that everything say scomming soon?..Yah that sucks hahahaa

I would think you need to get all of the old paint off before trying any type of coating. Adhesion will only be as good as its weakest point (original paint)..Unless they actually react with one another..I dunno

For engine parts, 120-grit Aluminum Oxide is required for sand blasting. For headers, you can use any medium grit sand for a finish. Having said that, all surfaces have to be clear of matter and wiped with Acetone.

Jet Hot is really not that expensive. Other than the jackshaft bracket, I paid $275 for all of the parts coated.

You did jackshaft with bearings or had it rebuilt?

I had to have the bearing replaced. Jet Hot toasted the original, they wouldnt coat it unless I signed a waiver allowing them to cook the bearing....lol

So when you include the cost of the Jackshaft, You paid way more than 275?

Did you send all this out to someone to be coated?.

Is it possible you could share with us?.. Your process of having these sent out and coated?
