Retro..... as you know preperation is everything, the cleaner the better. The directions were bake for 30 min. @ 250, then 400, then 600 with a 30 min. cooling period between each phase. Thats for the primer and then you do the same for the top coat, takes a while but obviuosly it worked. I have to build some 4 into 1 headers for this and I think I'm going to try the same finish on them.....can always blast it off and have them ceramic coated if it doesn't work. Also if the parts are on the exhaust manif., again clean them up as good as possible ( I would remove them and sand/media blast all the rust off) then paint primer, allow to dry, run engine at idle for 10 min. allow 20 min cooling period, run engine at idle for 20 min. and allow another 20 min cooling period. Lastly is you drive veh. at normal speeds for 30 min. and allow 30 min to cool......Same with the top coat.
