    Nice!
    What bender do you have, it makes nice bends?
    Or are you buying pre-bent components?

    All done. I don't know whether to just paint them or have them coated at this point. There are so many conflicting stories about ceramic coating and the heat put off by them. Some swear that they stay very cool and some say little to no difference. anyone have experience here? Before and after pic

    I’ve had good luck wrapping with titanium fiber wrap, and I’ve had friends who’ve used Swaintech coatings to great effect (better than my wraps but more $ and time)

    ETA: the swaintech coating only comes in white, so that might be something to keep in mind.

    Got my headers back from being ceramic coated. They look great to me.

    Those look nice. Nothing better than a custom set that fits exactly how they need to
