    Can this product be used as a base application on intake & exhaust manifolds before painting? Specifically, I
    have a GTO and the cannot hold paint on the motor. Can the production color be painted over the ZyBar

      Good morning Chuck,

      Hushmat has been developing this product for awhile now, however I have yet to see any of this product hit the retail shelves. Hopefully they release this product soon as there seems to be a real demand for it.
      Although it is curious that your engine will not hold paint. I’ve had trouble around the exhaust ports before but not the engine overall. I have even had good results spraying bare metal engines with epoxy primer, followed with regular body paint. As with any paint application, surface prep is key to good looking and long lasting results.

      Wrench Safe!

    I’m I able to spray this product on headers and
    Exhaust pipes and air dry? Does it come in colors?

      We agree, this sounds like a great product that is exclusively distributed by Hushmat.
      However that is all we know at this point as we have not yet seen any commercially available product.
      Hopefully they release it soon!
