Header heat sheild question

I've been researching for days and I just can't seem to find a DIY or someone explaining whaT i need to do to paint my heat sheild. Do I have to sand it down? It's rust free and is clean. Also I read one coat only and not two or more correct? Sorry if this has been posted and answered before I just can't seem to find it.

Re: Header heat sheild question

heat resistant paint.



one coat usually does the job - multiple coats tend to flake off.



If it's grease and rust free- just clean it up a little and then paint it.

Re: Header heat sheild question

I have 2k temp flat black paint which I think is good. There's no rust but on the edges it looks a little rusty would that matter? . I like that H on the shield looks real good.

I would sand down any place that looks like it could be rust. Better safe than sorry.

I agree any rusty edges or places sand down use CLR and then go for it!
And thanks I thought the H would add some much needed attention

Re: Header heat sheild question

I used a wire wheel to clean it up and brush away soot buildup. I only did the outside though, no point in doing the back side.

Yep. Has to be on a drill or air tool or something with power and high rpms..electric screwdriver won't cut it.

The bolts holding it on though can be a bitch and a half though. I snapped one of mine off and now it's permanently stuck in the header bracket.

Re: Header heat sheild question

It's because they go through hot and cold cycles that they would get hard to take off. i think i'm going to paint mine now.

Re: Header heat sheild question

I also didn't use anything to help loosen it, but yeah that top right one was the first to go, and when I took the engine apart I did the same thing to the bolts on the downpipe. They all gave in before breaking loose haha

Re: Header heat sheild question

Just tape the sides and add some old newspaper on the sides where you don't want the paint and it with some light grid sand paper. That way you don't have to remove it. Thats how i did it. only bad part was that i couldn't paint the bottom part of it. even though you can't see it unless your under the car.

Re: Header heat sheild question

^Kinda seems like half assing it lol. Not to be rude. But just spray some wd-40 let them soak and unscrew them so you don't risk any overspray at all and get a much cleaner look.

Re: Header heat sheild question

you could also look at a high heat powder coat. in which case use a sand blaster for prep and find a person to powder coat. IMO I like it much better than paint.

Re: Header heat sheild question

Well I just painted it. There was only rust on the edges so I just went over it with sandpaper and took it off. So far it came out pretty good I only did one coat. It says to wait 3 hours to handle but that's following the instructions of 1 light coat 1 medium coat and 1 heavy coat, So I think I can handle it a little sooner.

Re: Header heat sheild question

Well I wasn't sure because it gets so hot, I would think he would have to use a metal H or something. Plastic sure wouldn't do it, and I don't think a paper cutout would work. Unless you mean he just used it as a stencil.
