This question cam up the other day and Eric gave this reply...
"A low cost method that works for a couple years is to sandblast them clean, and paint with genuine John Deere Muffler paint. The Deere paint works better than any I have tried in the high heat department. Very light coat, just enough to turn them black. Thick coats will peel when heated."

High temp paint

Look into a company called Techline. The are the suppliers for a lot of companys that do ceramic coatings. They do sell their products to the general public. They also sell some other interesting stuff. I also bought their high temp self curing aluminum colored coating.

Heat coatings

Our fire dept. contacted John Deere several years ago to try to contract with them to mix some of the red color we use for our under carriage protections. They did it a like you've been told in this forum it is a very good product. Not cheap but very good. Prep of the surface to be painted has to be done carefully and meticulously too.

thanks, I looked at the tech line web site and then did a internet search for comments on the tech line exhaust system coatings.. Got hits on lots of forums, from F bodies to subaru to honda to arctic cat.. saw one negative posting that the paint disappeared from the headers in a month,, but that poster also said he put it on really thin, saw lots of posters saying they have had good success with home applications,, one guy said he had it on a manifold for over a year and it is holding up fine. most agreed the surface prep is critical. How soon are you going to try the tech line coating? I have blasting pressure pot and a spray paint set up,, so I'll likely give this stuff a try,, will be late may or june

High temp paint

DadTruck, You'll probably do it before I do. Stuff keeps coming up. I just finished putting control arm bushings and ball joints on the Jimmy. Preparation for the application of the paint is stressed as critical as you said. I am waiting for some one to donate an oven for the cure. (not likely) But it is not required for all their products. I'm glad you found the stuff interesting. They have very good customer service too.

Not only is the prep crucial, but so is the heat cycle. All high temp paints require a heat cycle process for it to fully cure.
