When purchasing new manifolds for the Jaguar E-Type they typically come already enamelled from the supplier, unless you opt for the more expensive option of stainless steel.

Our customer wished for us to purchase un-enamelled manifolds as he wanted to coat his with a heat proof alternative.

They are readily available without the enamel coating so we have sourced some and are ready to treated them.

There is a special procedure to applying the heat resistant paint with think layers having to be applied over a period of time and baked at 160’C.

The work has now been carried out and the results are fantastic.
