Dan, love those white pipes.

I'm still waiting on my headers to fit right, but when they do I want to go with white also.
Just called Jet-hot to talk about the coatings and the no longer offer white, Swain Tech Coatings does white, but said it can be marred making it look blemished in spots. What coating do you have?  any problems with it?

I have the Swain Tech coating.  I had them coated, then I sanded it down smooth with 220 grit. It just takes off the high spots and doesn't effect the coating properties. Then I sprayed with VHT white high temp paint.

They are very easy to clean up and re-touch if something gets on them. They are also a lot cooler when the engine is running and they cool down real fast.

The Swain tech coating is kind of a silvery white that's kind of like sandpaper to the touch. I'm glad I went this route.

Went to my first judged show this past Saturday. Got a trophy too. Woo-Hoo.  Nothing to spectacular, they gave out trophies to 80 of the total entries and I was one of them. There were approximately 175-200 cars there. (rough guess)

Here is a picture of my baby at the show as well as the placard I made up for the windshield. It "proudly" says Hurricane 427 Roadster.

Many people asked who's kit it was and quite a few of them were surprised. 3 even copied down the name and web address.

That's such a beautiful car, hope mine comes out half as nice.  Any problem with registering with the blue dot headlights?

Thanks. I'm sure yours will be awesome too.

No issues here in FLA with the headlights.  No inspections.
