Exhaust Manifold paint

Has anyone painted their exhaust manifolds? Did it stay on and what was used?

I've used Eastwoods Stainless Steel paint with good results. When used on headers it cures to a dull silver but never discolors. On exhaust manifolds it is excellent. All the Eastwood paints I have use have yielded great results. I highly recommend them.

I've used Eastwoods products. I use the pint, you can just buy the pint and not the kit. There is like a 1 year shelf life on it the can says. I've coated the manifolds and the flanges with 2 coats and they still look great.

I painted the exhaust manifold on my '15 Ford with high temp radiator paint (for steam radiators in old homes). Still looks perfect after 8 years. I painted the exhaust manifolds on my '67 GTO 4 years ago with high temp stove paint. It looks like gray/black cast iron in color. Made for old iron wood stoves. They still look like new after 4 years and 5000 miles. Cheap and easy, and no priming. Just blast and paint.

I used the Eastwood stuff years ago and it was as good or better than anything else out there, but not perfect. Like most paints, it burns off over time.
When I put the RARE manifolds on a few months back I had the ceramic coated hoping they will last a little longer.
Honestly, if you have them off the car, and a few extra bucks, you may want to look in to the ceramic coating. If not, then try the Eastwood paint.
