Tomorrow, I'm taking my repro Veloce headers to be Jet-Hot coated in OKC; I could ship them, but it will be a great day for a road trip for me and the Mrs.
I'm taking a pair of Giulia Super headers for our Alfa club VP, Scott Fowler; his Super is white, so he's going with a white coating.
I'm still not sure if I'm going to go with a silver color or a polished look. I know the silver is more in line with the OEM look, but I've seen a couple of 101 1600 Spiders with the polished coating and it looks really good. George K and TKO have headers that look to be the polished coating and it looks great with a black cam cover.
When I get back from OKC, I'll take a couple of tons of stuff to the zinc plater and powder coater. This marks a new direction in my restoration as this will conclude the cleaning and rust removal and refinishing of all the front and rear suspension pieces, all the fasteners, brackets, engine and transmission supports and other stuff that came in dozens of unmarked sandwich, quart and gallon zip lock baggies.
In light of some incredible sheet metal work we've seen lately here on the BB, having headers, nuts & bolts, and other bits sorted may not seem like a big deal to most, but it signals the "reassembly"phase of the restoration has begun. Frankly, I'm stoked, or whatever it is that they say, these days
