Jim Weise is doing a motor for me soon so I figured it'd be a perfect time to clean up the engine bay. The manifolds need some serious cosmetic help and so I dug into what was out there and found out about this stuff. How messy is it? From what I have read it fully cures once the engine runs and the manifolds get hot, but does it dry at all after you apply it and before you run the engine? I guess I have this idea in my head that the stuff will be like anti-seize compound until it cures and that it will get everywhere and stick to everything and make a mess, especially when you go to put the manifolds back on the heads. On a related note...can someone confirm or correct the following finishes: firewall: chassis black frame: chassis black control arms: satin black inner wheel wells/fenders: satin black core support and radiator cover: satin black full size car air cleaners (those with the "455-4" decal): satin black Thanks in advance.
