But they will ceramic coat them, right ?

Didn't get what you were looking for from Clinton ?

Can't wait to see how they turn out. Looks like they aren't very far from here.

Mitch, Clinton shot me straight. He was really trying to talk me out of doing the headers in white because they're a PITA which I understand. Few others here used New Image with white headers so I decided to give them a shot. He does a similar process to Clinton with multiple layers. Clinton was trying to talk me into chroming the headers then scuffing them and painting them with VHT... I'm sure he knows what he's talking about but I didn't want to do that.

I had a fellow I race with who owns a powder coating company do two sets for me. He actually sent them to a vendor he uses specifically for white. Cost me $700 for both sets.

I agree, why spend all that money on ceramic and then paint over it ?
He is concerned that the job will come back when the white starts to discolor and having to strip and redo.

I hope what you get back is to your liking and stands up to the heat cycling.
