    In short YES.

    If you dont why waste the $$ and time to coat em. I guess if you just want the look and some under hood heat protection your fine. But they can still rust from the inside out. And your not usin the product to its full potential as it was made for.

    A tumbler would be easy and cheap to make. Its the ceramic media you need to use that cost the $$$$

    For the chrome ceramic, you can either use oooo steel wool, but that's alot of elbow grease, or turn your air down to sbout 15-20 psi & blast it with glass bead. either way turns out good.

    I do Lots of ceramic coatings. Just like Zpider said. Vibratory polisher is needed. You could polish the outside with white rouge and it look good. IF you could get inbetween all the tubes. bt Ceramic was made for a thermal coating not to just look good. So if you dont do the inside and vibratory polish it to burnish the surface you justwasted your time and $ doing it in the 1st place in IMO.

    Only way to polish chrome coatings are a vibratory polisher with a media called Microbrite. By hand, well, maybe for one part regarding test, but not in a business situation.

    Yes, you can apply a special coating inside the pipe, to prevent heat transfer even more and increase gas speed, also good for reducing bluening effect on normally chromed pipes....

    questions on ceramic coatings

    hi, i have been asked to ceramic coat headers. i know caswell offers the chromex and it looks great, what is the best way to polish this and my other question is, is there a ceramic coating to spray on the inside? i have heard that they spray the inside for less resitance on exhaust flow. is that true and can anyone help me on this? thank you
