Few questions about exhaust wrap...

Since power coating is not possible in this country , I am definetly going to cover/wrap my exhaust.

What length should I buy and how far should I wrap it?

dont get them powder coated, get them jet coated. it's a different type of process. look into it if you can.

to answer your questions, if you want to do everything in 1 inch, you'll really need 100 ft. if you only want to do each header pipe seperately, 50 ft for the 1 inch will be enough (note, be conservative on each pipe to ensure you have enough cuz you'll use all of it). and then you'll only need 15 ft of the 2 inch to finish the rest of the headers where the pipes join together.

+1 on the jet coat or ceramic coat. But as for powdercoating, anyone can do it.

Just need to have the right tools. I know that there are guys that do it in their home ovens on smaller stuff.

Yes I found ceramic coating but I also ordered the heat wraps...
I think I will enjoy the black look on my headers but yesterday I tought about riding in rain and if dirt would be easy to clean of those wraps...
Any of you have info?

nope, not easy to clean off of headers. you have to redo em every couple years at the very most. get em ceramic coated. it's not worth the wrapping, trust me.
