Hot Pipes

PostAuthor: Cusstout 1100 » Fri Jun 14, 2019 10:03 pm

Finally got the pipes welded up for my project. Chrome is outside the budget, so I used VHT header paint. After it dries they want you to cure it at 250 degrees for 30 minutes, 400 for 30, then 600 for thirty to finish it off. Half an hour cooling between each heating cycle. The wife was away, so I did the 250 and 400 cycles in her oven. It wouldn't do 600 degrees, so I fired up the BBQ to finish it off. Eventually I'll probably wrap them, but I wanted a coat of paint on them nevertheless.
