exhaust coating

I have a new exhaust which is just mild steel and I need a coating solution. Ceramic coating would be ideal but that kind of stuff is a long way from here (NSW south coast).

Can anyone suggest a place in the ACT, or a DYI solution that will do a good job?

Good quality exhaust paint?
HPC in Loengatha, Vic do a top job on ceramic coating - and Auspost has now located Leongatha and both collects and delivers there most days.
Theirs is the ONLY black coating that stays black on exhausts - and they do heaps of other colours too.

http://www.performancecoating.com.au/ Mate used them for helicopter exhaust and Cat C12/C15 turbos. As good as HPC. They are at Rydalmere in Sydney.

If you wanna do the postage thing, Jet Hot coatings do good work.

Just a quick heads up. The ceramic coating works very well at extending the lifespan of black steel to stainless, and is also good at reducing temps markedly, but it can chip easily and look crap in fairly short order if you do any gravel work.

Is Loengatha anywhere near "Gatha"?

As a native of Leongatha you did cause a bit of a double take lol.
