if seen a few mani's glow.

1200 might be good enough. But it depends on your set up

Prep work is the key to a good paint job, by removing all rust and grease.

Oil or coolant accidentally spilled on it will fuck up the paint much faster than heat.

It may work and it may not. The last exhaust stuff I painted was on a small block chev. Paint (duplicolor) was toast before the truck even warmed up! But the problem there was not letting it cure right the directions on the ceramic infused stuff says some shit about curing at 200 degrees or something. So my geuss is let it cure at least in the house for a few days before putting it on but dont get upset if it all bakes off. Either way Good luck

It's a 50/50 chance. Use the High Heat Clear Duplicolor offers. It'll help keep the paint on a little longer. I use the duplicolor paints on valve covers when I get to my friend's shop to spray my covers with real automotive paint. You've got to use the clear tho! The clear will help all the liquids from eating away the paint, and also give extra protection with the heat. Good luck!!

That high temp paint chips off pretty easily. the 1200* stuff will chip off. 1500* does "okay". 1800*+ can stay on for a decent amount of time. It will chip off sooner or later. Especially if you dont prep the material well. I saw someone attempt to bake 1800* paint in hopes it would help. I'm not sure what the results were/will be.

Nope that shit sucks.. I used it on my 02 Civic N/A motor on header and it melted right off after Started up car. And I know my 02 dont get that hot @ all.. My Turbo EG gets hella hot though..
