Have a rust situation going on with these headers that i want to get fixed soon and wondering if there are places that can clean then up and recoat, rather can take them off, sand the rust off and put a protective coating on them, or what. Just asking in case anyone has done it before themselves with success or failure or sent them off or what have you. The gasket is a metal gasket so will it require a new header gasket when putting back together? also not sure rather the cost to send them and get cleaned up or take by a shop if thats what you recommend would be more/less than getting a new set so i will have to see what you guys say and then call around and ask and compare. My car has been garaged for a few yrs now but even with it i notice condensation still settles under my hood so I'm guessing from 02 till now with age, alot of my engine pieces are going to have some rust action going on huh?
