Jet Black Extractors

Hey pplz, some of u will and wont kno i have just bought some New (couple of months old) Genie extracors off a wrecked EF from my bro... i had a look at them today and theyre awesome, but... they havent been coated with anything and have the red/rustic look that most extarctors have... what i want to kno is...

1) is there anythin out the that i could coat them... like a heat proof, jet blak coating?
2) How would i do it and what prep work would have to be done? i presume it would not cost much this way.
3) would jet hot coating be worth the buck by sending them away instead?

any help would be great... i wanna do this so that my engine bay looks clean and neat, not with messy extractors standing out more than my red rocker cover... ! cheers, Shan.

Re: Jet Black Extractors

vht is the brand name, not sure if it stands for anything. You can get it from places like repco autobahn, supercheap and k-mart. You will tell when you have the right type because it says high temp or something similar like that on the front of the can.

Re: Jet Black Extractors

Yeah VHT Fireproof is the paint you want. Come in a range of colours and will stay on for a number of years. My first coat lasted about 3 years. I recoated last year and it is still good.

Re: Jet Black Extractors

extractors on my old XP were that same red and rusty, so silly me i slapped rust converter on it. although once they got hot i had all these white areas appearing on them! scrubbed that $hit off after it cooled down and they are actually black in colour now

Re: Jet Black Extractors

The more sanding and prep work you do, the longer it will probably last. When I did mine earlier this year I didn't bother with any sanding, just sprayed the stuff on and so far it is fine.
