Good cheap high temp rattle can paint?

Hey everyone, is there any particular high temp paint you prefer? This is going to be for the exhaust, from the collector on. I'm hoping to find an easy to use, cheap high temp paint that will hold up.

Thanks
Jordon

I'll X3 the previous contributors, Rustoleum barbeque paint works very well from collectors to tail pipes. Just be sure the surface is rust and grease/oil free.

I've used the BBQ paint before and it does work great. I just need something silver / Aluminum colored. I ended up getting the VHT flameproof stuff, at $10 a can it better hold up! Its the only high temp silver stuff I could find locally.

Lowe's and Home Depot both have the Rustoleum 'que paint. My history with VHT has been mixed.

If you wanted black, John Deere Muffler Paint makes Rustoleum and VHT seem like junk.....but it only comes in black.

Proper prep, degrease and sand or Scotch-Brite your pipes goes a long ways to making any brand last longer...paint doesn't like smooth new pipe.
