Ceramic coating.

So I'm thinking of getting some akropvaic headers for my FZ8 and want to ceramic coat them. Who has experince with local shops, and what are your thoughts and reviews? I'm on the NW side but I don't mind traveling for quality work.

My headers done by them. I went with them because they do inside and outside coating of headers and none of thr local shops I found would do it. Anyways best of luck.
