Lightbulb Stainless Steel Headers

Hi,

I'm new to the list and was searching the archives for recommendataions for headers for a sbc 350. I've yet to find a recommendation per se, but thought I'd ask about stainless steel. I've seen posts that ceramic will keep it's look and I'm wondering how the stainless version will wear or color. According to this ebay listing, it's suggested that they won't turn.

Just curious because I want something good, that will last and will look good. They're going on a "restified" 1957 GMC NAPCO (4x4) Suburban/Carryall.

Thanks!

Keith

SS will discolor some after they have been in use for a while. But they will not rust. And they will polish back like new.
