most paint isnt appropriate for Heat exhcangers, until i spent time on this board i never even hear of people painting heat echangers, they have always been electro-coated, basically annodized to maintain heat transfer

JDM Toilet seats, they are only allowed to use them for 3000 flushes before the taxes make it cheaper to get a new toilet seat. Oh a we know japanese take better care of their toilet seats.

You forgot the exotic, JDM sounding name. Just watch G4 for Ninja Warrior for a tough sounding Japanese name.

Japanese don't use toilet seats, they just squat. They have special squatting toilets.
