I think OP means something like Cerakote (which is a brand of ceramic paint)

Funny you mention Embee - I was going to mention them before but wasn't sure if you would be interested to OC area. I just called them last week myself as well for a quote. Looking forward to seeing the finish product.

Well boys and girls finally got them installed, almost lost my shit trying to find the right sized piece of wood to get the stock tips off. I highly recommend EMBEE in Santa Ana for ceramic painting these with cerakoate n baked! Look awesome in person. I think they'll ad 20hp or something...🤪

Yes it was worth it, great finish. Might spray paint the silver part of the inner stock tips black to blend in, to make it not so noticeable. Or way till I drive a bit and they’ll be black from the exhaust soot.
