I'm going with the polished stainless. I think I will have them coated, it turns out a good coating place is on the other side of Houston.
In the mean time, I can throw on the head pipes off my Stone, as it is still setting in pieces half way trough the V11 engine transplant.
Has anyone here tried coating just the inside? Some places say you can coat the inside of the pipes and it will keep the outside from bluing. I'll check with the coating company and see what they recommend.
