    I've never seen anything above 1200*, i figure the metal will be on the verge of melting at 1700* so the paint isn't much good then. . .

    I painted my big block headers with 1200 degree paint,


    it is still looking good/decent. I did a quick prep job and used the aluminum 1200 degree paint, some came off likly because of prep work, but most of it is looking good /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
