Default baking a manifold?

so i just painted my manifold black. just wondering if it is safe to bake it in my oven to cure the paint? will it damage it at all? and if i can, how hot and how long would be good? Thanks

Which manifold? What kind of paint? If it's not high temp or powder coat, baking could eff it up.

If you have an oven that will damage your manifold, i would be quite impressed.

If your talking about the parts that you were going to paint with the high temp paint like you said in your other post, you should be good, you wanna paint mine for me too while your at it?

If you plan on using the oven for cooking later you may want to reconsider.

not for nothing. the only reason i see a point of curing it to make the paint harder would be when installing so it wouldn't be that easy to chip. otherwise the first time ur car gets up to temperature the exhaust temps will cure the hell out if. plus you might stink up ur kitchen and oven. putting toxic fumes where you cook just doesn't sound like a good idea to me.

just drive some miles high speed, open the hood and touch your manifold.
you think your oven will get that hot?
you think it will melt there?

the only reason to bake to cure paint is if you mixed it and it has a catalyst, IF you rattle canned it, there is no need to bake it. and bake only speeds the process for production paint work in shops, now you do need to let it dry fully but no baking needed

i baked my manifold no problem and the paint stuck great a friend of mine didnt wana bake his and his paint lasted about 5 minutes on his manifold....since your unclear on what your baking im gonna assume its high temp paint you bake it at 300 degrees for 20 min let it cool then 450 for 20 min let it cool then as hot as the oven will go or what the part itself can handle.....you could just put it on your cr with out baking but it gets to hott at first and the paint flakes...as far as fumes i painted it and let it dry then baked it and there was no odors at all

^^^ There's absolutely no need to bake. Your friend most likely didn't prep the surface.

As others have said, baking only hastens the cure time. Just wait a solid 24 hours before install and you should be absolutely fine.

I let the heat from the engine "bake" my mani after I let it dry for a day and looks great
