        light coats ,,,let it sit for a while ,, followed by bunging it in a low temp oven each time to cure it ,,

        best done when the miss is gone somewhere

          Don't forget to air out the oven, or the Sunday roast will have a strange taste.

          But follow Dex's advice. The oven worked for me.

                Thanks for the tips guys. I think I will use the BBQ with the roasting hood on rather than the wife's Bosch fan forced oven, I think it will be safer - not for the oven but for me.

                  Black.

                  I use the VHT CASE paint SP-903, sets as a black oxide finish as original !

                    I'd use the one on the left. Different temperature range. All motorbike shops should have it and probably supercheap as well.

                        just came back from the powdercoaters and they do a heat proof powdercoat I seen through the window as the checky buggers knock off at 12noon on fridays
                        has anyone used this heat proof powercoat?
                        if not ill ask them on Tuesday what temp its rated to

                          Can I ask a stupid question?
                          Are you trying to paint over a chrome exhaust, or tidy up a Matt black/non chrome one?
                          I'd be keen to know if the powder coaters can strip the chrome off an exhaust system and powdercoat it in any colour or finish.
                          Look foreword to your update,

                            they'd blast it first ,,
                            cleans them up to get rid of any impuritys .
                            find a powdercoaters with on site blasting equipment ,," and yes there is such places without " ,,
                            the quicker its coated the better ,, fingerprints etc have natural oils that will cause problems with coating ,,,, the less handled the better .
                            its engine oil madge ,,,

                              no such thing as a silly question we all need answers
                              the exhaust I have is chrome you will see it in my build thread I just about to start tonight
                              not sure if I would do it to it its fairly good condition and orginal
                              might try it on a aftermarket low mount exhaust but ill wait till I talk to the powdercoater first to get his opinion
