DIY IC Pipe Painting?

Any of yall painted your IC pipes yourself? What all did you do for prep? How'd you paint it? Clearcoat?

Any thing you can throw out there for me...

Pics are great too

Re: DIY IC Pipe Painting?

Mine is just rattle canned also. Wire wheel, wiped down with acetone. About ten coats.

Installed with dirty hands, went through a heat cycle or three, grease marks live there now.

What caused the difference in the color shade? Primer change?

Was this stuff in a spray can or did you use a real sprayer? Can you give some more details on it all?

I have a whole turbo kit turbo dual HPOP etc all here I am getting ready to install and would love to spray it all like that. I too actually like the darker shade but woudl likely want to try and be close to ford blue.

Looks like my blast cabinet and parts cleaner tank will be getting some more work soon.

Re: DIY IC Pipe Painting?

sounds like you got some fun mod's going in..congrats..the ford blue i bead blasted very lightly, primed with high heat primer then sprayed very thin layers of ceramic with a gun..a friend of mine that works at a body shop got me the primer and ceramic paint...i see it in rattle cans as well...not sure if its the same or not...its been posted here but i cant remember what the 3 letters where..EHV maybe?? (ill look for the name after work). then after about an hour of drying time..I baked the pipes in an old cook oven i had for 30 minutes at 250* then take them out to cool for 30 minutes then again in the oven to 400* for 30 min and cool for 30 again..back to the oven set at 600* for 30 min and cool again for 30 min..I used the direction for the ceramic but did a second bake at 600* just because I wanted to... ill tell ya what..this stuff is rock hard when its baked...I can see why it holds up....i did the alt and A/C a week or two before i did the rest..it is high heat paint and was from a rattle can..i like that blue as well but could not get ceramic to match up...

Re: DIY IC Pipe Painting?

Cool yeh I have taken some time to put a whole list of upgrades together to do all at once. I figured if I was gonna have everything torn apart I might as well do it all at once.

What is great is I can do things like the AC, PW steering, alt as I have time. I have a old spray gun but have never used one in my life. I think I will go the rattle can route and do really light coats to keep it smooth.


Will do the valve cover as well since I will be all in there.

You might consider doing a soundproofing coating on the valve covers instead of just a decorative coating. I think others have had decent results in quieting the engine noise when using a coating on the valve covers. Just a thought as long as you're that far into the engine.
