Yes! I'm bringing them to Newport Mesa Powder Coating in Newport Beach, CA. They do powder coating and ceramic coating.

My '70 454 Chevelle had Appliance headers and they were great. Thicker wall tubing too and were still good after 10 years, when I sold the car.
Tony, I have a ceramic coater near me and he can do white, well, many other colors too.

After bringing my headers to the shop to get coated in white, they said never mind we can't do white that'll withstand the heat.... Subsequently I've called three more shops here in Southern California who don't do white. They're telling me the product is no good and turns brown/beige. I really want white headers

I can call my local guy about doing white, but the shipping would be crazy.

Can you paint them white over the coating they put on? Paint is what would have been there back in the day anyway.

Looks like if I want white ceramic I'll be shipping them out anyway. A guy near me said he can do it but it won't look good after a few heat cycles.

Jason- I've thought about blasting them and painting them with VHT but I'm worried with the longevity of the paint. The paint looks decent on them right now because they've never been ran...

I talked to Jet Hot in North Carolina, they will do the white but it ain't cheap! I like the smooth finish they offer since it is similar to the original paint.

I am also considering Swaintech White Lightning. Supposedly this is some of the best coating and is applied very thick. The ceramic material leaves a somewhat rough textured look that actually looks almost just like Black Jack headers. Guessing Black Jack discovered this after white paint failing on the Appliance headers...

I just talked with Clinton at Race Coatings. He said the Swaintech is an awesome coating but has a course texture and will retain every bit of dirt and grease that gets on them. Impossible to wipe off. In that vein, ALL white coatings are going to stain from any oil and dirt, because of the color. He can ceramic coat them, which for white is a 4 stage process, for $300, BUT he says you should wear gloves for install and anytime you need to touch them. The coating will be smooth. And never use fresh coated headers for engine break in or dyno. The coating should be cured with a few short drives with normal heat cycles.

I remember the staining as an issue on my appliance headers in the 70's too.

Here is where I was looking at getting my headers done in white for my '62. I think the ball park price I got from them was under $500.
