    I've only seen rust colored ones in the past but... while it's apart I should paint them.
    It's a 69 400, thanks

    Calyx is best. Only one that can be constantly repaired with a gloved finger. All the paints will burn off. All originals rusted on the sales lot.

    It sounds stupid, but I've had the best luck with Rustoleum Grill Paint - I just shot mine with silver, but you could mix it with a little black to make more of a cast grey color I suppose. I did mine probably 4 years ago and hundreds of 1/4 mile passes and they still look like i just shot them. It out lasted my other manifolds painted with expensive Eastwood manifold paint....

    I had mine ceramic coated and they still look new after 4 years.

    I used duplicolor (ceramic) engine enamel. Painted manifolds last april and paint is still good.

    Those look great, where did you have them done?

    How much should I expect to pay for ceramic coating?

    I had mine done locally here in Ottawa, Ontario.

    I don't remember what I paid, but I think it was in the $200-300 range.

    What would be the correct color for a 70 gs 455 on the exhaust manifold and what brand to buy works the best.
