    Thanks Newman!

    So am I. Unfortunately my experience is that the horsy lose weight every each time he is chromed....Any how I had to repair the ears on two of the spinners so they definitely need new chrome.

    Best regards Peter.

    I gave up on the Ansa sport exhausts. These mild steel exhausts corrodes like mad and even if they looks good on the outside, the inside is often completely gone. I cut one of them up for fun just to find out that my decision to order new SS exhausts was wise. All 4 manifolds are in excellent condition and I have decided to reuse these. They will be blasted and surface treated with hot spray aluminum and followed by VHT paint. Had to remove the heat protection shield from the two rear manifolds to ensure good corrosion protection:

    Peter, somehow I had missed this fantastic rehabiltation project. The fact that it's a Boxer AND prugna makes it even cooler. Did you purchase/borrow that sweet Car-o-liner frame bench in the photos? Superb skills, the car found the right home with you. Kind regards, John/CT/USA

    Thanks for the Nice words John. I totally understand your admiration for the boxers. I feel the same way and it fuels my motivation to get the car rolling within the foreseeable future. I bought that car o liner bench cheap from a shut down workshop. Not many cars are worth restoring in a bench anymore due to the expensive labor in my region so these tools are often for sale for a bargain.

    Best regards Peter

    Hi!
    May I suggest instead of aluminum coating..which results in a rough surface I believe, that you get the manifolds ceramic coated as I did...both inside and out. T Image Unavailable, Please Login he ceramic works great. I keeps heat in the pipe thus resulting in increased exhaust velocity and HP...I guess...and reduced exterior heat, but they DON'T corrode and it's a fairly sturdy coating and won't chip or flake if applied correctly.

    Good suggestion Don and I would love to have the opportunity to go for ceramic coating, but it is not available for automotive use In Denmark or any nearby neighboring countries. It is correct that aluminum results in a rough surface, but this is an excellent base for the VHT paint. The corrosion resistance is excellent, and the price is very competitive (Much cheaper).

    Best

    Try resting your hand on the 600 degree manifold and tell me if the ceramic coating kept the heat in.....

    The ceramic protects it and doesn’t burn off, that’s about it. Don’t expect a performance gain.

    Now Paul......I didn't mean you could put your hand on it. But it does keep heat inside tests have proven that. To a degree (is that a pun?) And true, there is a performance gain but not one that is discernible at this level.

    Odd on the lack of ceramic coating over there.

    I agree with you on the aluminum. I have a set of sand-bent Lola T-70 headers for a Small Block Chevy that are aluminum coated. Also have a set of brand new in the box Magnesium wheels that fit a Lola T-165, 220, 222 Can Am car if interested :)

    Lola T-165 Can Am car is out of my reach....but thanks for the offer...-:) I guess the market in Denmark is too small to feed a commercial industrial business for ceramic coating of manifolds. I can get specialized ceramic coatings made locally on industrial products, but none of these firms are targeting the automotive costumers. The alternative will be to ship the manifolds to UK, but the price will be out of proportion shipping and insurance included.

    I had my entire exhaust ceramic coated when I put in the Newman diff. It really is a nice priduct and the headers still look like when they were done. Image Unavailable, Please Login
