I went by Canadian Tire today and found Green High heat paint it looks just like the AC green so I pick up a can for $12.99. I bead blasted my pipe then painted it. Looks good here's a few pics.....[galleryattach=12700][galleryattach=12701][galleryattach=12702]

Most people use 1500* paint (or so). There's an abundance in black for BBQ grills...that's what I've used. I know people have been using Dupli-Color High Heat Paint with Ceramic. That's good to 1200*, and available in about six colors.

I've used the duplicolor 1200 on my pipes that were origionally ceramic coated and chromed and havent had a problem but I think that 500 degree stuff is meant to be an engine block paint, It looks great, but good luck keeping it from flaking off.

Agreed, Unfortunately anything under 1200F wont last long at all, even the 1200F I put on only last one season, until some flaking etc..

Looks way awesome color man...Enjoy.

Well that sucks for me. I guess I'm going to repaint it with the right high temp stuff but I don't think I will do it this year.

i painted my pipe on saturday with 500 degree paint. started bubbling pretty bad after about 5 minutes. had to sand them all down again and painted with the 1200 paint. i saw that green high temp paint in the store yesterday, i thought they had it in 1200 degree also. i wouldn't even waste your time putting it on and trying it out unfortunately. i found out the hard way, at least you have a sand blaster.

Thats what I would expect to happen if you painted the actual pipe and not the pipe cover when using 500 degree paint.

Im a painter by trade get some spray can paint stripper and remove the paint this paint will not hold up your pipes see temps from 1175f to 800f you could have a fire if you would like a sharp looking set of pipes jet coat them silver looks good and better power to boot.
