After a meet-up with Animal (with his project manta) I am now the proud owner of an SBD monster sized xe exhaust manifold.
The thing is I want to look after my investment, so it being made of mild steel I want to give it a good protective coating - question is with what???
I've used the exhaust spray paints in the past and not been impressed with any of them - they all burn off round the headers after a few months of abuse.
Exhaust heat wrap may hold the heat in and stop heat escaping into the engine bay - but I'm worried it will also hold in moisture and the rot will just be left to happen undectected.
Anyone know of any other method of 'rust proofing'? What about ceramic coating or something like that. Not really worried about the cost of it (but won't stretch to gold plating).
