While farting around at Autozone I spotted some 2000 degree exhaust paint. Simple question, will it work on the midpipe or even the whole exhaust piping?
It was right next to the dupli-color 500 degree engine block paint. I'm almost sure that it was dupli-color too, if not, then probably krylon. I wouldnt even touch the headers with paint, those just get too dang hot.cyclerider105 said:Where did you find the 2000 degree stuff and what kind is it? I have used dupli-color "ceramic" high heat 1200 degree exhaust stuff on my mid pipe and it works pretty well, but after a while it starts to blister. Headers are really hard to keep paint on! Way hot!
Get them "eat off it" clean and then rough them up with 000 fine steel wool... be sure to wipe them down with a lint free cloth to get the steel wool bits off.novakane said:well u obviously dont "ruff up" stainless steal pipes before u paint them, or do u?

One of the guys on our local forum (svdownunder.com) had his black ceramic coated.
But I'm sure someone in the US would be able to do the same:
I just found this while searching for some other stuff - its my old 03 650n. The ceramic coat was great for a little while, it was not very durable. I got better life from respraying it with vht ceramic paint from an aerosol.WOAH! Look at the 12 o'clock bar!
