Anybody ever paint thier headers and if so what paint is good for this?
I used some high temp engine paint once, but it started flaking about 6 months later. Then I bought some ceramic coated headers. Were all nice and pretty for about a year or so then they started to fade and dull. I think for the set I have now, maybe wrap them with some of the heat reducing tape from Summit and forget about them.
I used 1500 degree paint. Black, ceramic based.
I have used some POR exhaust paint that is holding up well.
My buddy used POR 15 high temp exhaust paint, it's actually good up to 2000 degrees. But the first time he started the engine it flaked off. So lesson learned. Make sure you scuff up the headers REALLY good! He scuffed them but they were still too smooth to hold.
