Pacemaker

I purchased a set of Pacemakers for the Clevo (pre-loved).
Bought some original paint for the Pacemakers (light blue) from Pascoe Performance in Melbourne.
The paint is still perfect after 6 months. Cost around $20 for two spraycans.

Have also used the VHT brand before and never had a problem.
Important thing, with VHT, is to get the pipes as clean and grease free as possible before painting. The paint does not harden until it has been heated up.

Other option is JetHot coatings in Castlemaine but would be $100 or a bit more.

The XR family ---->

TBH: (the better half) drives an ED XR6 wagon (Mock Dev 4 160rwkw, JMM extractors, 4 electric windows, Ghia door panels in XR trim, rear head & arm rests in XR trim, Momo s/wheel with Cruise, EL thermos, EBGT wheels, etc) things to come soon = EECV upgrade.

Well the factory light blue my pacemakers came painted with is now all cracked and falling off in places after 2 months. I couldnt care less about paint on my extractors though.

I have painted mine white with VHT about a year ago. I have not had any problems.
I spent some time on them with a wire wheel before painting.
It cost under $20 for the paint.

VHT paint is the go make sure you get the exhaust paint (1200 or 1500 degF depending on colour) and clean them as best you can.

There is also a correct prcedure to follow once they are fitted the steps are on the back of the can.

I have done a couple and they seem fine even on the sprint car.
