That is my plan. I have not had time to grind it off yet, but plans are to get it welded on, along with some other patch work, and then sent over for some satin black ceramic coating.
Thanks for posting that up skypilot.
The trick was also finding something that can be welded. The image that MattDzx3 has looks like it may be brass or copper. Not sure how that would weld to a stainless steel header. The part number I have is a zinc plated steel. So should weld up fairly easy.
