Exhaust and disks in phosphoric acid first. You can see the pitting on the disks after being left uncoated for only one day, I'd say they would have been fully rusty again in 3 - 4 days!

Then heat resistant paint for both. Will add pics soon.

Absolutely chuffed with the finish, its not perfectly smooth everywhere but is as tough as nails + old boots.

Matching colours off my local ESB van thanks to my neighbor Ray!

This colour is same as this:

 Im going a slight shade darker with a little more pop. This is a Dupont code for anyone interested. Shade is close to RAL Signal Yellow.

Here is a nice example.
