If I had your
money I would, too! Since this is my car, and not a customers, I am paying the bill. And to use these as a mock-up means i have to build them twice??? No way... I just filled it up with water, found a few pin-holes, and fixed them. I am going next door to use their bead-blaster, and then put some spray paint on it. It'* the rear manifold, anyway, no one will ever see it. I will probably have the cross-over ceramic coated at $17.00/linear-ft. The manifold would cost about $80.00, out of the budget. And I will pop for the ceramic coated front log from ZZP, but not right now...
