Default Local ceramic (or other protective) coating for headers?

I've got a fairly rare set of long tube headers from Sweden on my old Volvo 240 DD/clunker. They're mild steel, and starting to show a decent amount of surface rust. I'd like to get them coated to protect them from further corrosion (performance really isn't a concern on my ~70HP 240), but I'd like to avoid the time and extra cost that shipping to a place like Jet Hot would add. Is there anywhere local-ish that does this kind of work?

No personal exp with ASCO but my 2 experiences with Jet Hot were underwhelming

Interesting as I've had several items done by JETHOT and all worked out well.

I have used ASCO as well for some powder coating but nothing related to high-temp.

If you can find a local company you might take a look at cerakote. There is a high temp air dry version you don’t have to bake. Just mix and spray on your cleaned part.

The coatings looked good when new. One set for a 912 pin holed and rusted through in short order. When I got the set back I noted the areas in both front J pipes as looking a bit different than the rest. As if the coating was thin or had sucked into pinholes in the metal. Called Jet Hot and they said it was normal, no worriz, is guaranteed anyway. After they rusted I sent a set of pix and Jet hot said it was due to road rash from kicked up debris.

Nether setup had much of any change in the thermal properties before and after that I could detect.
