Or should i just douse it in rubbing alcohol?
The red is VHT Flame Proof header ceramic paint. 1300-2000 degree f. Really it's kind of overkill, and takes 7 days to cure. I didn't do any prep work except clean the head with electrical spray cleaner.
Dupli-Color Engine Enamel works just as well, and it's only 500 degree f. That's what I used on Stunner.
the best place to buy the electrical cleaner is walmart. It comes in a red can.
