Ceramic coating

Can anyone recommend a good shop for some ceramic and powder coating work in the Snohomish or King County areas? Need to do some exhaust manifolds and engine bracketry.

Thanks in advance,
MrFreeze

Performance Coatings in Kent ceramic-coated my headers several years back. They are near Emerald Downs IIRC. I'm not sure if they powder coat as well.

Used Pacific Performance Coatings because it was convenient. Looks like they did a nice job - $165 to ceramic coat a pair of HiPo manifolds, and they let me pick up on a Saturday (even though they are technically closed). Turn around time about 4 days. Here's how they look:





Thanks for the recommendations, guys.

Very nice job. I bought a new set and regret not having them done before I installed them. They have rusted just sitting on the engine stand. I'm assuming they can be blasted and then coated?

Sure thing. The ones in the pic have about 5,000 miles on them. I neglected to get them coated when new, so I figured better late than never. They look better than new, now.
