Who does ceramic coating on headers?

I have a set of Hedman headers that I would like to have ceramic coated before installing them. Any ideas on who does this kind of thing in the Portland area?

Thanks.

I would check with the Portland aircraft maintenance companies. Most aircraft use ceramic coated exhaust systems, and they should know where to get it done.

P.S. Found this: http://www.finishlinecoatings.com/contact.htm

Ooh, I'm interested too.

I'd like to get my downpipe coated... Might just use header wrap on it though, should cut down on the sound/vibration a little more.

I just got a price from Finishline Coatings to coat my Hedmen headers - they are about $250 for the pair.

They coat the inside and the outside - and will withstand temperatures up to 2000 degrees.

I am taking mine in this week to drop them off to be coated. I will let you know how they turn out. From what I have gathered from talking with them and from receiving another recommendation from a local shop, they seem to be the place to go around here for this kind of thing.

Is the coating good for anything other than rust prevention?

The ceramic coating helps keep the heat inside the pipes, thus improving exhaust efficiency and cutting down on ambient temps.
