    It looks really good. Is there any way to buy the paint from you instead of sending a whole manifold down to have the job carried out for us DIY guys?

    Over the years they have changed their formula so they tend to come out abit more orangey than what they used to. I've done a manifold not long ago and whilst it came out nice it wasn't the original looking red from factory so I'm assuming ABM is using a different paint for the above results.

    yes the frost is too orange of a colour ..ive tried the powder coating .. not good enough wrinkle finish and the colour isnt quite right .. at the minute i can only buy this paint in liters to paint with paint gun .. so not practical to post .. im trying to get aerosols made .. will keep you updated ..the paint is very expensive to buy .. costs me over 200 per liter to buy so id say aerosols if i can get them made are going to be approx 40--50 each .. expensive yes .. but if your restoring a nice car and want ur manifold the correct colour and texture its worth every penny ..
