Is this Ceramic Coated?

I got the JDL UEL header on Black Friday and paid extra for a bronze ceramic coating. Do any of you guys have the bronze ceramic coated header. It kinda looks it is there but not really. I was expecting more of a gold color. Or maybe Iím just stupid.

Ceramic coating looks like paint. These are brushed stainless.

(IMO they will sexy as hell when they go all blue from the heat)

The JDL headers I had were coated and you couldn't see any of the weld color, it was all 1 shade. Those are definitely not coated.

Those aren't coated. You might want to contact JDL about that since you paid for the service.

Hopefully they get you squared away. It's possible that speedindustry screwed up the order. I ordered my headers directly through JDL and had them coat mine. The order wasn't screwed up at all.

Yup, they sent me the right set of headers at no extra cost. Havenít had a chance to install the headers just waiting for some warmer weather. They look pretty good quality from first glance.
