I've just spent hours sandblasting my exhaust manifolds and I put Eastwood's exhaust manifold coating on 'em. How well does this stuff hold up? My car is a 68 rs 327 and pretty much a stocker that lives in a garage, never sees rain, and gets driven on nice days and cruise nights. I got all the rust out of the pits and smoothed out sharp edges. I'm just trying to get an idea of how long this stuff will last(hopefully a while) Thanks for any help-Dan in WV

My friend who restores cars uses it, he says it works great. Granted these cars do not see much use, but he swears by it.

There was a thread earlier this week that you might want to read in the Engine & Drivetrain section... I have personally seen several applications of Eastwood that were at least a year old. You would have thought they were just done! I think the trick is to sand or bead blast them and paint them asap! The first time you fire your motor up it bakes the stuff on...

Thumbs up

68Ralley, I put the Eastwood manifold coating on my 1970 Corvette manifolds about
2 years ago and it has held up very well. I blasted the manifolds and applied the coating
with a brush-two coates. The manifolds still
look like I did it yesterday and the car gets
driven on the weekends and to many shows several states away. I had tried Calyx previously with less than favorable results.

I've had the coating on my 69 Z/28 since 1993 and they look brand new!!! The stuff is the best coating made bar none!

Question

Did the two coats of the Eastwood exhaust manifold coating fill in the surface pits?

I used POR 15 exhaust manifold on my '72 elky. It wasn't 2 months and 30 miles before it started rusting through. I sand blasted the manifolds and everything. Now, I have two friends who did the manifolds on their F*rd at the same time. They used the Eastwood coating and it still looks good a year later.

Yes, the Eastwood product filled in the small
pits but left the casting numbers readable.
I think sandblasting the manifolds really made the difference and gave me the best surface. One of my manifolds was pitted pretty bad and now you cannot even tell.
