They make a manifold coating that comes in a can that is applied with a brush or foam pad.

see reply #5. been there done that.

"The eastwood exhaust manifold cast-gray would be good".  Is this what you are suggesting?  I do have that in a rattle can but you mentioned rattle cans won't hold up.  So what are you saying, not to use rattle can but to buy Eastwood exhaust manifold cast-gray in a sprayable?

Parts / Clear 65-66 Tail Light Lenses?

Has anyone ever seen any of these before? A buddy has had them sitting on a shelf for years. Have all the Factory [FoMoCo] numbers molded into them. They are not faded, they seem to have been molded this way.

1964 1/2 - 1966 / Re: Sway Bar: HiPo? Shelby? or Aftermarket?

I measured three 65-66 Mustang GT front sway bars, all from San Jose cars, a May 65, a Oct 65 and a 66 Hardtop, build date believed to be in Feb 66, and the average diameter is 0.840 inch. I made the measurements in 5 different locations, one on each side of the insulator area and in the center. I used a mechanical caliper (more reliable) to measure all within the last 15 minutes of this post. There are always manufacturing tolerances and on hard drawn, tempered steel, it's difficult to maintain. As a result, dimensional differences are allowed to occur to "enhance" the requirement. In this case, a 0.813 inch required diameter would be probably a minimum, with up to 0.040 inch maximum over.

Jim,
Great feedback!  Thanks for the effort!  Care to sell me one of those original sway bars?

Find out for yourself if you like.  I can guarantee after 6-12 months you'll start to see surface rust coming through.

So what are you suggesting i do? Paint with a spray gun?

Put it on semi-heavy and bake a 500 degrees won't hold up?

Those rattle cans won't hold up over time.  The eastwood exhaust manifold cast-gray would be good.
