Nothing likes to gather rust and oil quite like the cast iron exhaust manifolds in your old car’s engine. So to make these look really great again — many times even better than new — bring them to our shop for restoration.
What to do when you are ready to restore exhaust manifolds
- Burn off. We use our high-temperature burn-off ovens for items like these V-8 exhaust manifolds. Baking them at a high temp effectively removes all surface grease and oils and any that may have, over the years, soaked into the metal.
- Prep is key to finish. To finish, we media blast the manifolds inside and out to remove years of rust and grungy and add a profile to the surface for optimal adhesion of finish coat.
After blasting, all parts are stored in a temperature and humidity-controlled room until pick-up. Or we can ensure you get the right performance coating you want, right away after blasting.
