Here is a set of manifolds off my brothers 74. I have been working on them for a little while.

They look good. Did you blast them, first, or just paint them?

I wire brushed them then blasted them before I sprayed them. I think they turned out awesome. Man I wish I had a couple more sets to do so I could use up the rest of this coating

How do you think that coating will hold up on a set of headers?
