Hi. I have been coating for about 3 years now, and I think I am getting pretty good at it. I have a customer (good friend) who wants me to coat a brand new Edelbrock Air Gap intake manifold. I showed him what Reflective Chrome with a clear coat looks like, and that is what he wants. I am concerned about getting sufficient coverage in all the nooks, crannies and backsides. An Air Gap manifold looks kind of like a tunnel ram with much tighter spaces between the runners and the “plate” of the manifold. I was planning on hot flocking the chrome hoping that the powder would easily stick to all of the areas of concern. Then I thought I’d cure the silver and hot flock the clear, perhaps letting the part cool down a bit first. I will, of course, clean the part religiously and mask off flange areas. Does this sound like a plan? I almost did not take the job, but I have to get the hang of coating a part like this some time. Should a new part like this be outgassed?
