This past weekend I carelessly showed my Father-in-Law my progressively flaking exhaust manifold and resultant cracking paint above it and told him I needed to get them professionally re-done, at which point he reached into his toolbox for a wrench and started talking about sandpaper and BBQ paint…
“Give me half an hour and I’ll have it done…”
I wrestled the wrench from his hands and gave him a soothing Single Malt to assuage his ardor, but I thought I should actually check with the Brain Trust here that he is indeed, however innocently, leading me astray, particularly since I have subsequently found all sorts of similar ideas on The Internets. (Or wrapping them).
So, sandpaper & BBQ paint or take to a professional shop? And assuming the latter, what am I looking for - exhaust shop, a good “collision” body shop with paint facility?
