B&G/Ponydown coating questions

What's the difference between the 2 coatings. I realize one is ceramic and the other isn't, but will the non-ceramic coating hold up over time? Not that my car is a peach but I'd just like it to hold up and not look like crap after its gone thru some heat cycles.

With that said if the ceramic is the way to go, why is ponydown's ceramic coat $300 more?

Nick.

My guess is they either are using different materials or one does it inhouse and the other maybe outsources it in regards to the cost difference. I personally would never do anything but ceramic.

ponydown outsources his ceramic coating to qc coatings in town that does 1st class work. They coated my 321 ss headers for my turbo kit and they look like new today 3 years later

Yea, that's what I was thinking. I have BBK ceramic shortys right now and they still look as pretty as the day I opened up the box.

Any B&G owners having a problem with the ceramic holding up? If you do or don't how long have you had the kit and how much do you normally drive it?

My BG should be here in a week (crosses fingers and prays) it may get sent off to get a "thermal barrier ceramic coating" as my guy at Performance Coatings in DFW calls it. I have used the same coating to powder coat everything from valve covers to upper and lower intake to headers and it holds up great.
