Ceramic Coating

Need to find out if anybody is into ceramic coating of car parts or knows someone who does it. I have an exhaust manifold off a 87 TC I would like to have ceramic coated (powder coating will not hold up), preferably somewhere close to Ohio, Kentucky, or Indiana but will consider other states if not too far away. Also looking for a rapid turn around time.

Here is a pic of mine. It took 2 weeks to get it back. They had to send it out to Jet-Hot. It cost $120 plus tax. I haven;t installed it yet. 3 more weeks then its on.

Indy Powder Coating here in Indy does ceramic coating. He's located on Gasoline Alley just south of the track, right near KB's shop. They do it in-house.

Give Gary a call and see what he says...

Just being curious but what temps does the exhaust manifold reach? Eastwood manufactures a powder coat that withstands 1000 degrees.

I am thinking somewhere in the 1600 plus area.

1400 normally but as much as 1800 if it goes lean

Good judgement comes from bad experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

I ceramic coat but I only do one color and that is black. It's a flat black and I use it cause it's rated at 2000*F. I don't have the silver color, wish I did..
