Hey man, that link may be bad.  I tried to get ahold
of them, but no luck.  I'd like to spend ~$200 on
coatings.  The local guy can do the 2000 degree Black
Satin on the outside of the header and hot side of
turbo for ~$225.  He said another $190 to do the
inside with a different coating.  How do these prices
sound?  Should I keep trying Micro Coat?  Those prices
seem a little high for just sand blasting, spraying
and baking.
