Default High Temp. Paint

I just had my custom cat-back installed and decided to paint the exhaust piping for added wintertime protection. I used 500 (they also make 1200 degree F) degree Ceramic added aluminum color paint and it turned out flawless. I painted it while the piping was hot, so, it practically baked on and dried quick. It looks great, and not a single run either. I went ahead and painted the heat shield, hangers, and all other welds to the exhaust system except that magnificent looking fully polished SS Magnaflow muffler . I ran it for an hour and highway speeds to get the full bake effect because I had to make a trip. After returning from the trip everything still looks great. Anyone out there who hasn't did this, I think for $3 its great way to protect your investment.

My friend used that same stuff for his brake calipers, and I think they even have a clear coat. He got it at Kragen's (same as Shucks, Checkers...), and it's held up and looked as new for almost a year now. Definitely better than paying $20 for that special caliper paint!
