Look at 6th post down.
It's great for show cars. A nicely restored car that sees the road the dust turns to grime and you're at it with mineral spirits in the fall.
The last two posts on the link were interesting though. Jeff asks, quite rightly, how one color finish, on a part that was supposed to be bare metal,could be more
correct, than another finish?
When in fact both are in-correct. Shouldn't there be a LOT of latitude in the area of coatings as it seems more subjective than anything? Will everyone eventually be buying paint from the same supplier?
I may be wrong, but ceramic coatings on exhaust manifolds are now accepted?? If so will someone later argue that there are some ceramic coatings that are a 'more acceptable' coating color. I've never been there but sounds like a daunting task, keeping up with the 'new correct, more acceptable, pickier finishes. Poor judges will have to be running around with color charts
Great information guys.
ps the flat clear does not make the box 'very shiny'... more of a dull damp look. Definitely retards corrosion in a decent storage environment,though not outside hung on an Air Conditioner, and sticks well when the part is acid etched.
