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...
