1965 intake manifold paint (burnt)

Well I painted the engine and intake manifold the correct Pontiac Blue (Duplicolor DE1610), but did not block off the exhaust crossover. The paint is rated up to 500 * F. Unfortunately upon starting the car, the paint on the crossover runners is already showing signs it will not last. Other than blocking off the crossover, what is the solution? Did the factory cars have crappy looking manifolds within a few months ? Is there a special paint that can withstand much greater temperatures ? (Attached is what the engine looked like before running.) Thanks in advance

If you prime the intake with hi temp silver when the blue paint burns off you get the factory look.

I think the only other option is to block the exhaust crossover. I did not do that as I wanted to keep it factory and improve choke functionality. In retrospect, I should have just blocked off as I live in socal and the car is really only driven in 65+ degree weather and the car warms up fairly quickly. Hindsight is 20/20.....

This is normal and yes, it happened when these cars were new. It's a badge of honor and proves that you actually drive your car. Don't worry about it.
