Default Header coatings

Good evening. Finally getting to the point of working on our car to get back in shape for racing again. Looking for advice on header coatings. Have an older set of Hookers that have the typical rusty appearance. Hoping for something that will stay looking good over a long period of time. Just checked on Nitroplate and it appears they don't take small jobs from little guys like us anymore. Have used Jet-Hot many years ago and had bad results with theirs flaking badly after about a year. Any suggestions? Thanks...

William, give the guys at M&R 865-933-1478. They have a quality product, will stand behind their product and are racers. They are a small company and do not take credit cards (the last time I used them at least) and they will ask you to mail a check after they are finished with them.

A little out of your area , but Central Connecticut Coatings does an excellent job .
I have some headers out there that are 5-7years old and are in great condition .
My experience with their work has been excellent.

Lynn, I've had the Superstocker in storage since Mike passed. Had planned to have it out last year, but life keeps throwing curveballs our way. Hope to get it to a friend of ours that Mike was working with, when he was able to drive it, to go over it and help me get it back on track this year. I'm sure just from sitting in storage for this long, there's plenty that needs attention. If we can keep everyone in the family healthy and upright, I should be able to handle that.

The headers I need done are for a small block 68 Camaro to bracket race & cruise on the street once/twice month.

Thanks for the input guys. I'll be making some phone calls to check them out in the next week.

Do not hesitate to call Jimmy Bridges, or me, if you need help. Jimmy and I were just talking about Michael and the car last week, when we were looking at some heads, and what we were going to do this year.

Thanks Alan. Once I can put time into the superstocker I expect I'll be calling on ya'll. I have the heads Jimmy worked on for Mike sitting next to the car. Don't know much about them though. Unfortunately Mike never got the opportunity to put them to use.
