Is this cerakote? f not what is it and how long has it been on? That is close to what I am looking for. They are supposed to be raw cast, which I can do with sandblasting, but as we all know they will rust and look terrible. The owner of this car is spending a lot of money and I want something that will stay on. The cerakote seems to be the way I need to go from what I have read on here and their site. Thanks again for all the replies.

What color of paint do you want? Is factory cast silver looking or black? Eastwood has a cast iron ceramic coating and an aluminum ceramic coating. Check out their website. TLC Cast Iron Ceramic Coating 4oz

|crownver||I read somewhere where rubbing on graphite works well, I believe in Carcraft or somewhere. Turns it sort a dark grey. Rubs off too, but easy to put a little more on to keep things looking good. Can't remember if the article said it stopped rust though.|

|carolinacustoms||Yes sir I apologize I was talking about an exhaust manifold paint that will last and not turn white or flake.|

|Richiehd||I thought you were talking intake, but after reading your post again, Im pretty sure you are talking exhaust manifold. Either way, Eastwood might be my first stop. The 2 part engine paint is awesome, on blocks and intakes. You'll have to do some more research on the exhaust.|

What are you guys using to paint/coat manifolds that actually stays on? I am looking for a factory cast look for an original restoration I am doing and I have not had much luck in the past with any kind of paint staying on very well, but I am sure there is something out there. So I am here looking for suggestions and input. As always thanks in advance.
