They went in the oven looking like copper and came out looking like copper. No change. Looked almost like FTF's manifolds. I was told the heat would changed the copper to a cast iron gray. Didn't happen. So just to make sure I had enough heat on them, I put a torch to them and got them very hot. Still no change or discoloration.

Where did I go wrong?

I don't know. The only requirement for the copper paint I ever heard was that it have a very high metallic content. My memory is the recommendation was for it to be 7% metallic or greater.

Do you still have that Rustoleum can so you can check?

I have it right in front of me but I don't see anything about copper content.

This is supposedly the same paint written about in a Drive Line article some time back about blacking out manifolds.

The type paint is noted in my post above. Click on the Amazon symbol.

Did. The info on Amazon was, as is so typical, devoid of any real information.

I suppose the MSDS might reveal the copper content.
