View Full Version : ceramic coated exhaust pics

thought I'd show off my new exhaust. I dropped off the old one and they coated it for $100.00 , that's all three sections, and this stuff does not turn blue when you hit it with fire the way crome does.

Looks good Robert.
What system is it? Jet-Hot?
There is a paint shop down the street from my workplace that is doing custom powder coating for boats and cars. They have a powder coating for manifold and exhaust systems. They guarantee the paint will not burn off.
I am considering taking my manifold and exhaust to them. Anyone has any experience with that?

I don't know the system but you can talk to them at American coating specialties
there number is 281-446-6203.
this is the second job they've done for me and I'm still happy.
here's the first one.

What is the red springs? Is it heat shrink?

Before I knew better, I had my RAF exhaust system done by Jet-Hot. It was akin to having a slop-bucket chrome plated. The exhaust system never lasted long enough to get my money's worth out of the coating.

red streaks on the springs are beads of 736 high temp rtv.
If you have a multi-section exhaust held together by springs you run safety thru the spring leaving slack to hold the spring when the hook breaks.
you run a bead of high temp RTV down the spring tip to tip to hold it together when the spring breaks saving your prop.
see you at swrfi may14 + 15
The main purpose of placing RTV on top of the springs, I was told by Maxie, is to minimize spring vibration, which could lead to spring failure. The safety wire is there to prevent the springs from going into the prop if they fail, but I guess the RTV will also hold them together.

I believe John Landry stated a few months ago that he was well satisfied with his coating by "Jet Hot". I recently took mine to "Jet Hot" also. I opted for the 2000 degree black coating.

Chuck, per your blurb at the bottom of your posts, you don't understand what I said. I said that the muffler and pipes fell apart before I got my money's worth out of what I paid for the Jet-Hot process. I didn't say I was unhappy with it.....I was unhappy with the mild-steel, poorly designed, hot-air leaking, crumbling exhaust system. The Jet-Hot still looked good as the exhaust system went sailing into the dumpster.

A lot of stuff goes right over poor Chucks head. Give him some more info or clues and he catches right back up.

Thanx Ken. I had no idea that you were dealing with a POS to start with.
Ron, I really appreciate your help also, the explanation to Ken, etc... You really hurt my feelings, Ron. I think you owe me an apology, you AH. LOL!!!

Hey Chuck, love ya... mean it

Ron, I just got a look at your new machine. It looks real good. You still have a good bit of work to do though. I know you'll do it right. The Bensen you want to get rid of, does it have a redrive?
05-11-2004, 08:27 PM
That was GREAT!
05-11-2004, 08:32 PM
No Chuck, did you see a re drive in the pictures? lol
05-11-2004, 08:33 PM
I never saw the pictures, wise one!

Well get off your duff and go to that thread and take a look. Maybe you can buy it for your son. Would make a good first gyro, and wouldn't be a huge loss if he bent it up a little while new to gyros.
