    thanks for the pic outlaw.

    conrad will it hold up well in the dunes?? Or does i pitt and get dull? I also have a aircraft prop and nose cone to drop off to be redone up with a lil bling.. Can you guys take care of it?

    Thanks

    I've never been impressed with any coated headers, but I have to say those are the best looking coated headers I have ever seen, damn near like chrome. Those are sweet!

I want the aluminum protected from the water in the ocean at San Diego and in Phoenix races.
