Painted with rattlecan engine paint from checkers; $25. The trick is putting on like 3 coats of color and 5 of clear. There is no sanding on that manifold but is still glossy and smoth.

I'll play.



3 coats of VHT high temp red paint, no clear. I've never had the paint chip off or wear even sprayed with a power washer.

Wanted to get wrinkle red and cure it, but nobody had wrinkle red. Not even the automotive paint specialty store down the road had wrinkle red.

Are we talkin real powder coating (ie dry powder paint applied electro-statically, and cured in oven) or imitation rattle can "powder" appearing paint? longevity comes to mind with the first option... flaky mess the latter IMHO

BTW all above look great either way

vht is a hit or miss but you need to find the sweet spot. do it on a nice hot day in direct sunlight with about 5-6 light coats. the key is light coats with heat. i use a hair dryer to get it to wrinkle up.
