Holy ****! That is one CLEAN engine compartment.. hardcore stuff right there, man

the paint looks nice, but it looks like you only painted the heatshields, correct? What kind of paint did you use? Be sure to keep us updated on how long it lasts.. I don't seem to find a whole lot of good reports on exhaust painting.

I think the best option when it comes to anything aestetic for headers/manifolds is just spend the money and powder coat them.

I assume you pulled it off to paint it or was it already off?
