Flame eater
« on: January 28, 2020, 03:42:39 pm »
Getting back in the swing of things after being down for a while . Did a little work on my first flame eater today still got to do some touch up work after the paint dries good .Not sure if I like the red are not. These are cool engines I may have to get a few more. I really enjoyed meeting a lot of you folks at cabin fever looking forward to a lot more shows

very nice, I've never seen anyone paint one of those before Stewart, this is the best flame eater that PMR makes in my opinion. 😊

I like the look of the red also, just not sure how well it'll hold up to the heat. Did you use VHT Flame Proof header paint? It's rated from 1300-2000 F.
PMR makes the best flame eaters and I see your's is one of the newer models looking at the base and position of the port.  Don't they sound great.

Yep used the header paint it holding up very good. Rain it about 35 minutes it still looks grate. Yes they do have a great sound
