Calyx Manifold Coating 3 oz

Calyx Manifold Coating 3 oz

Product Review (submitted on June 21, 2011):

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.
