Anybody actually found a paint that stays on headers at high temp? I'm going to have my old pair sandblasted.

And don't say Jet-hot, that's too pricey...

I've been using Plasti-Cote and it seems to work pretty good ,Hasn't peeled off or anything. I re-paint them about twice a season .

Plasti-Kote or VHT, the VHT is real good. The key to getting the paint to stick is sandblasting them.

the best paint is VHT
the trick to making it last is to apply it in thin coats and letting them dry good
then bake them in an oven
if you can bake them put them on the car start the engine let it run until the headers start to smoke then shut it off then let them cool all the way before restarting
this cures the paint and makesit last awhile longer

JUST A TIP FROM LICKIT
