I paint mine (the few I don't powder coat!) in catalyzed base/clear coat urethane like I use on my car bodies and it holds up like a champ! Only place it may give you problems is on the intake manifold @ the exhaust x-over. MUCH better than any rattle can finish you can get and you can match the car exactly. As with any paint, the finish is as good as the preparation underneath but with the usual basic prep, you will get a ceramic coated-like finish.
