    To Wrap the Exhaust or Not to wrap the exhaust

    Jet Hot used to be good but they have increased their prices dramatically and closed most of their operations. That's why I recommended Cerakote. The coatings are similar but the cost is reasonable and they have applicators in many locations.

    Thank you, Mike. I really like that M1. It has a much sleeker look than a GT40.
