I'm thinking about having these guys coat my V-H propipe headers, anyone have any experience with them?
They blast the outside with aluminum oxide and the inside with walnut shells and then coat both inside and outside with 2000 degree ceramic, color of your choice.
They will do all this for $70 to $80 plus shipping. Doesn't sound to bad to me but don't know anything about them ohter than they are in Washington state.

Have you checked into Jet-hot? http://www.jet-hot.com/ Their Sterling finish is very close to chrome. I saw it on a Triumph this summer. Looked good plus the owner was happy with the heat reduction. Think the Sterling is rated for 1300 degrees. I'm looking at going with Jet-Hot for my stock headers. Tired of cooking my thighs in the summer.

Gomer, 70 or 80 bucks is a great deal if it;s done right. Jet-Hot wants about $240.00 to coat an exhaust for a H-D. Jet-Hot is a quality coating, a lot of drag racers use it. The top fuelers use it so its more like good up to 3000 deg. F, rather than 1300.

Sounds like they would have to blast off the chrome and then coat. I like what I read on their site. I asked for an estimate for a set of Pro Street pipes.

Yep that is what they do. Blast the chrome right off inside and out.
