      Geluk! Beste mod vir die rocam. Ek sou nie my geld mors op powdercoat nie. Jy kan dit laat heat wrap vir 'n derde van die prys. Met die prys wat ek gekwoteer was vir powdercoat, kon ek nog 'n branch gekoop het!

      That's what they say yes. I think that only applies if you drive short distance only and the engine and manifold never really gets hot enough to allow for all the moisture to evaporate from the wrap.
