I am in the process of putting back together my rebuilt motor. I had the exhaust manifold blasted and trying to decide whether to paint it. I actually like the appearance blasted and un-painted. Other than appearance is there any reason why you need to paint it?
It's all a matter of timing the curing for when the Warden is gone.
Surprisingly, the fumes weren't bad at all.
I had to buy my own oven to put in my garage basement for curing the vht and baking small powder coated bits. Somehow the warden always knew when I used hers. I did luck up and find one that would hold a 15x12 wheel though
