yeah ive seen some engine enamel paints, i always thought they were a pretty cheap and dodgy product though, any one used them, what were the results?

i did mt brake rotors and calipers about 12 months ago and they still look like the day i put it on pretty much. Obviously an exhaust would get hotter than brakes though

i used the engine enamel on the old vc mate with the engine plates rocker cover etc... im not sure about the heat with the exhasut though....

now i use vht heat proof on the vl, but i do have spare engine enamel im keen to use it on it also... maybe take a look or ask at autobah or repco they have a wider selcetion then supercheap.

I'm keen to paint my exhasut aswell but im unsure if the paint will bubble up.

Caliper and rotor paint say if you don't exceed 400 degrees celcius then it should be fine. I don't know how hot exhausts get though..
