2 part Epoxy primer on an oil pan?

I have some left over 2 part epoxy primer that I'd like to spray on my new oil pan, then high heat rattle can on top of it. Can the epoxy live & not peel off?

You don't need "high heat" paint to shoot the pan. Anything will work. If you want to use body color go ahead. Even cheap black rattle can enamel will live just fine. The only engine parts that get hot enough to burn off paint are the headers and exhaust port area's on the heads. Anywhere else regular paint will live just fine.
Like deadbodyman said prep is key so prep it well and you will have no issues.

I put 6 of those Neo denmium magnets inside of the pan an slosh around some paint thinner inside the pan, magnets pick up a bunch of debris then did it again with purple power but did the outside also, magnets still pick up debris but not as much. Sanded the outside with 320 then another wash inside & out. Very little powder fine metal left inside this time. Used the HF purple hvlp gun to spray 2 yr old epoxy/catalyst, I was worried it might not do well being its age but besides taking over an hour to dry it did a its job. I let it sit out in the sun a few hours then put 3 coats of VTH engine paint over it. Won't need it for a couple of weeks. First time in over a year to use a hvlp gun. Since it a el cheapo gun I ingraved the settings I was using when I was painting the Camaro on the handle.

Yeah let's make something clear here, the trunk on a black car in the sun in Phoenix Az is going to be hotter than that oil pan! You don't need any "high heat paint" on any part of that engine realistically. It's going to burn right around the exhaust ports with anything you put on it and the rest will be just fine.
