Default Header Paint - VHT FLAMEPROOF COATING

Looking for a header paint that actually works? Then count on the fine folks at VHT to come up with a solution. From the makers of Nightshade, I give you...


VHT FLAMEPROOF COATING

This stuff works great! VHT FlameProof Coating will renew and extend the life of any surface exposed to extremely high temperatures. This unique coating is a matte finish, silicone ceramic base widely used by the automotive industry on exhaust systems and the aerospace industry for jet engines, re-entry vehicles and other high temperature applications. VHT FlameProof Coating will withstand temperatures up to 2000F (1093C) and is ideal for use on headers, exhaust systems, or wherever an extreme temperature coating is needed.

You have to follow the proper curing direction though for it to work properly. I painted my headers on the car. After the paint completely dried, I idled the car for 10 minutes. Then, I let it cool for 20 minutes. Then idle for another 20 minutes. Then cool for 20 minutes. Finally, I ran it under normal operating conditions for 30 minutes.

The finish is flawless and is available in many colors. Very little smoke or odor during curing; just a little for maybe the first 3 to 4 minutes of idling.

I'd recommend this paint to anyone.

Good to hear! The manifold paint I used wore completely off in about a month (plasti-coat). Although looking back, I may have missed the appropriate curing window as I painted them off the car and had a bit of a time installing them. If I do it again, VHT it is!

I report on them again as they age. So far, they look great.

Follow-up: It's been a month now and the black looks as good as day one. Seems to be holding up very well.

Did you spray the primer on first or just the header paint?

Just the header paint. Gotta make sure the factory coating is off first, as it'll burn right off. If you spray over that, anything you put on top will come off too.

Update: 7 months later and the headers are still perfectly black. This stuff is good.

I got a small piece of cardboard to protect the valve covers and I sprayed them. Pretty easy actually.
