Default Ceramic Coating - Headers

Any reputable shops in Toronto or surrounding area that ceramic coat headers? Selection very limited from what I have found online and not great reviews.

I've used Fireball Coatings in Erin Ont a few times for headers and other parts on a couple different cars over the years, the headers on our old Iroc well over 10 years old and still holding up well, plus the headers and exhaust on my C5 that's about 6 - 7 years old and holding up well...I see a place in Burlington - Jet Hot Coatings - but I've no experience with them...

Doing some research on some car and motorcycle forms Fireball get some pretty bad reviews these days. Jet hot coatings looks to be in Burlington North Carolina. So many places available in the US and so few here I guess sometimes population size does have its advantages.

Did you drive or ship? I did see them in my search and it sounds like they do awesome work but they are three hour drive and shipping costs would be super high on such a big box, I have a hard time believing there's nobody local who does good work.

I also used them, 2 times, silver and flat black finish. Both still look great after many years.

It's too bad you're down east as out here in the west-Calgary- I used a place called Top Gun Powder coatings. They powder coated many a part for me and they also ceramic coated my last set of BBC headers. There was an imperfection in the coating-which I couldn't see- and they insisted that they redo them for me. They did and I was still really impressed with their work. I would recommend them to anyone wanting to get stuff powder/ceramic coated. Here we have a plethora of places that do coatings like that. Good luck with your search........

Any shop that does good enough work for Bruce (7T2VETTE) is probably good enough for anyone on this forum.
