    There might be some exhaust dressings out there just as good, but I have used the POR 15 Hi Temp Exhaust Manifold Paint on several collector cars that I have owned with excellent results. This ex manifold has about 8,000 miles on it. They were off the car, blasted and prepped with POR 15 Metal Prep before painting.

    Use naval jelly for the rust.Scrub with a brush then power wash it. Oh and use the high temp flat black . Three years and still looks good. Its the only thing thing the worked for me.

    A Buddy of mine soaked his stock manifolds in 50/50 Muriatic acid and water for 2 days. They came out looking almost white. They were so clean. I can't remember what he painted them with but I thought he was crazy to try and paint them. He sold the car a couple months later so I don't know how long it lasted but they did look good.

    I've heard nothing but good things about ceracoat.

    How did you apply it?
