The headers are Doug Thorley Tri-Y headers that were bought bare and ceramic coated at another shop. This is because my husband really liked the Doug Thorley headers but they were not available in a polished silver ceramic coating. The shop that did do the coating prides themselves on having the shiniest silver ceramic coating due to a higher amount of actual silver in the coating. They also coat the headers inside as well as the outside instead of just some overspray getting into the openings. They felt this protected the headers from the heat better rather than baking the steel inside the exterior ceramic coating alone.
