But they will ceramic coat them, right ?

Didn't get what you were looking for from Clinton ?

Can't wait to see how they turn out. Looks like they aren't very far from here.

Mitch, Clinton shot me straight. He was really trying to talk me out of doing the headers in white because they're a PITA which I understand. Few others here used New Image with white headers so I decided to give them a shot. He does a similar process to Clinton with multiple layers. Clinton was trying to talk me into chroming the headers then scuffing them and painting them with VHT... I'm sure he knows what he's talking about but I didn't want to do that.

I had a fellow I race with who owns a powder coating company do two sets for me. He actually sent them to a vendor he uses specifically for white. Cost me $700 for both sets.

I agree, why spend all that money on ceramic and then paint over it ?
He is concerned that the job will come back when the white starts to discolor and having to strip and redo.

I hope what you get back is to your liking and stands up to the heat cycling.

Still waiting on my headers to come back from New Image Powder Coating back in Ohio... He said he should be done next week. In the meantime I decided to start assembling the dash. I installed a new dash pad, restored the heater box, lubricated the heater cables, detailed the radio, installed an NOS speaker I've had laying around for way too long, installed the ORIGINAL non cracked gold dash pad, all the original cleaned up switches (ignition, headlights, wipers, and cigarette lighter) look NOS, and the gauge cluster.

I originally planned on going with Stewart Warner Green Line gauges for under the dash but was persuaded by Jose, JBTech, to go with 2-5/8 black and white small letter mechanical gauges. He had this NOS set that he sold me and glad he talked me into them! Jason, SupernovaSS, sold me the 977 pedestal mount tachometer a few years back and man it looks GREAT! I am going to install a quick disconnect for the tach wiring in case I ever need to remove the gauge cluster. Dash is now about complete minus the glove box, at least I've stayed a little buy while I'm waiting for the headers.
