Has anyone ever gone to the auto parts store and gotten high temp spray paint to paint the exhaust heat shields and pipes?

How did it work? Thoughts?

I am looking at having mine power coated, but someone said to just paint them with matte black high temp paint.

I had my pipes ceramic coated in flat black look great a little expensive though and very easily scratch, I did do some touch-up with hi-temp flat
real close in color holds up nice.
so I guess what I'm saying is sandblast the chrome and vht brand flat header paint will work nice for you

The exhaust tubing itself must be painted with high-temp exhaust paint, the kind that's rated to at least 1300 degrees or higher.

The heat shields can be painted with engine enamel, the type rated for 500 degrees is sufficient. That same paint may be able to be used on the muffler bodies but I have never attempted that.

Of course you can paint the entire system with the hi-temp stuff and know it's just about the most durable for temp resistance.
