I second the duplicolor ceramic, and also the VHT 1500 degree paint and eastwoods stainless steel finish exhaust header paint. All very similar formulas and all require baking. The VHT I thing requires 1/2 an hour of continous running at operating temp.quote:
Best stuff I've found is the duplicolor "ceramic" extremely tough and solvent resistant....but....gotta bake it at about 500 degrees for 2 hours for it to work. And it really stinks.
I prefer Dutchboy "pants down" finish.
Remove all the old paint and rub them down with bean oil. It smells good while it's baking on and it will never rust. Plus it looks cool, just like the old factory racers.quote:
Suggestions on what brand paint to use on expansion chamber exhaust??
when you say bean oil is that pinto or soy?
1967 GTO hardtop, 400 4bbl .030 over with ram air IV cam, th400 trans with dual gate, 10 bolt rear with 3.55 posi. I'd say burgundy with a black interior but the body is a mixture of original burgundy paint, black primer, and rust. I've owned the car since I was a teenager and at times it has been my only running car and my daily driver (in places like Rochester NY and long Island where salt is the snow melt du jour you can imagine what that is like on the car). The car used to be know around the queens NY street racing scene in the late 90's but is nowhere near as famous as my chevelle was in the early/mid 90's.quote:
Geets...what kind of Pontiac do you have?
I've got a 68 GTO.
The prices are out of control, I parted out about 4 GTOs over the years to keep mine on the road and all of those cars by todays standards would be considered restorable. $20K for a rough driver. I had someone offer me $10K for my GTO a couple of weeks ago and you can see the ground through the quater panel when you open the trunk (the trunk floor is new the quarters need a patch and I haven't put the extensions in yet). The value of my car when restored back to perfect is probably about $36Kquote:
Mine is a 68 Ram Air II, auto-trans...all the usuals Dual Gate, Hide-aways, AC, hardtop, no posi though. It's been through several stages...last one being Speed pro pistons 10.75:1, RHS cam/lifters, Mallory unilite, Moroso oil pump, Edelbrock intake, RA-III valves, bronze guides, RA-III springs, RA-III exhaust manifolds, Various different carbs.
Bought it graduation day of high school in 1976 and still have it. Although it's a bit spread out right now, but all the original pieces still in my possesion. Have you checked prices on these things lately....matching numbers, decent condition...get you $20,000 no problem.
