i just thought id let you guys know. i bought regular steel longtube headers and i went to pepboys and picked up a can of high heat spray paint colored "aluminum" and they look SICK!!! they look exactly like real aluminum only at a fraction of the cost. the paint also has ceramic in it so i guess thats a good thing too but not sure how much of an effect it actually gives cuz i doubt they could actually put enough ceramic in the can to block any heat, but whatever it still looks a hell of a lot nicer than the black. ill take some pics of them and post them, i just gotta have my friend email the pix to me.
