    About Calyx Manifold Coating 3 oz

    Though it's not as durable as our paint on coatings, it is convenient and easy to apply because there's no disassembly required. Just remove loose rust and rub-in thoroughly. Non-toxic and water-soluble. A little goes a long way: one container treats 8-10 typical V8 exhaust manifolds. Made in USA.


    Application

    For the best results, manifold should be removed, abrasive-blasted, and wiped down with PRE Painting Prep (10041Z) before applying. If you wish to apply Calyx while the manifolds remain installed on the engine, use a wire brush to remove surface rust and dirt, then wipe down with PRE. Apply Calyx with a rag or toothbrush, and work it into the pores of the metal. For a buffed appearance, use a fingernail brush.

    Calyx manifold coating is amazing stuff (Posted on 12/2/2013)

    I was impressed when I saw the product on the catalog. But it's when you apply it to a 52 year old manifold that this is no hype. My engine bay looks that much more squared away thanks to Calyx. I even rubbed it on my master cylinder. This product will definitely add points to any engine compartment at a judged event. And it smells like mint! How weird is that?

    Before I put a nicely painted rebuilt engine back in I thought I would do something for the manifolds. This was quick and easy to apply, if a bit messy. It looked great initially, but didn't last long. In less then three months rust was coming back through and this was on a car that was garaged and probably only say 500 miles of use max during that time period. I wish I had painted them instead.
    Nice finish but requires constant touching up (Posted on 10/15/2011)

    At first the finish was awesome. Smooth, silky, even, and clean looking but at the same time not exaggerated or flashy. Sorry to find out that the finish didn't stay smooth for long. Some of the reviews said manifolds needed touching up after a couple of years? In my case would you believe almost immediately? I retouched three or four times within a week. I even explained this to Eastwood and they were good enough to send a second cup so I could see if the first was bad. Same problem. I could not experience a finished product. I do not recommend this Calyx coating but I do recommend Eastwood. They are top shelf.

    OK, I saw the advertising pics and read some mixed reviews on various forums, but wow was this stuff impressive. I left the manifolds on the car and literally just grazed over the easy to reach places really quickly with a wire brush.
    Heres a tip- I found within a couple of minutes, that using a rag was not the way to go. Use something that won’t shred (Denim pieces form old jeans works great). Make sure you have a TOOTHBRUSH. The toothbrush will make this really quick. Just use your rag (or denim piece) to spread some of the Calyx on the manifold (a little heavy), then use the toothbrush to “brush” the stuff into the pores and to get the areas that are impossible to get well with a rag. You will probably want to pull the spark plug wire (leave the plugs in place) from the area you are working in just so you can access everything easily and get into the back area and grooves. The toothbrush will make this so amazingly fast it should be in the instructions! Be generous with the application of the stuff…you won’t run out.
    The little jar goes a long way, I have enough left over after doing my BBC manifolds for another 5 or 6 pairs easily.
    When done, take your car for a spin around town to heat the manifolds up.
    The transformation from splotchy brown/tan old manifolds to factory new looking in an hour is a “must do” project. Just go a cheap toothbrush (I had “hard” bristles and it worked really well). If you decide to go without the toothbrush and just use a rag, it will probably take 3 to 4 hours to rub in and get the tops, grooves etc well. Still well worth the effort.
    I do hear that the coating will need to be touched up after a couple years, so save the leftovers..… I’ll probably have to buy more since friends and family saw how mine looked and I now everyone wants the classic car manifolds done.

    It works great on manifolds, as others have stated, but you would be amazed how well it works on suspension and driveline raw metal pieces!! ie; drive-shafts, uprights, tie rod ends, u-joints, half shafts, steering boxes, carb & trans linkage, rear-end housings, just about anything that came from the factory in bare metal!!!
    Touch up is as easy as it gets, just rub in a little more product-amazing results.
    I believe the secret to success with this product is media blasting, and clean-clean-clean!! Parts that won't be exposed to much heat, should be allowed to bake in the sun or in an oven, for a couple of hours to cure.
    Overall, fairly positive (Posted on 7/14/2010)

    First application went on great and looked terrific -- just like when the car rolled off the assembly line 50 years ago.

    Ive subsequently had to reapply it twice to the exhaust manifold on the passenger side where it seems to fading in one area. Will continue to watch it and see if it persists.
    great product (Posted on 6/17/2010)
