I have seen some guys paint the runners (portion of the manifold that is rusted) with a high temp heat resistant paint, like 1500 or 2000 degrees. Then paint the rest of the manifold with normal engine paint. It ends up looking great and it doesn't burn off!!!

That is what I did on my manifolds. I painted the non-water-jacketed portion of the manifolds with a high heat 550deg paint and the rest of the manifolds are painted with a 350deg wrinkle paint to change up the factory look. I am not a big fan of the gloss paint put on from the factory. In any event, I would definitely paint the runners with as high of a temp you can find or it will burn off and rust in the same place yours already have. Can't wait to see how they look when finished.

TMCNO1, Thanks for the info I have a been looking at DIM book to get some new ones. I will get them apart and get them cleaned up and resealed. I also need to get a new damper plate the old one is a bad one.

JLeuck64, I do have 1500 paint I would hope that it doesnt burn off.


Markismm, I like the way you did yours I will keep all your tips in mind when I do these manifolds. Shouldnt be to hard to do.

Here is some pic's my friend found and sent to me of the boat when I got it. It was full of Hickory nuts to the edge of the lip. It took me a month of cleaning to get them all out. I pulled up the floor and checked the stringers and the in wonderful shape along with the bottom of the boat.

HI Sodar, I do have all the interior pieces from the drivers seat to the rear seat just like that pic you sent to me of the LTD just like that. most of the wood frames will have to be rebuilt before the new skins get put on. I will get some pics of the seats sometime this week.

Just curious, since it seems the interior and special gelcoat are about the only things that differentiates an LTD from a standard S&S.

I got ya Sodar, It was a complete boat nothing missing as far as I can see. I like the set up for seating and all the drink holders it has that is a big +.
