Post High Heat Paint (Rust-Oleum 2000 Degree)

I want to paint my headers flat black and bought the pain at AutoZone. It's the Rust-Oleum High Heat (up to 2000 Degree).

Prep:
Taped and cleaned with break cleaner.

Application:
Soon

My concern is that I don't have an oven to fit my headers. So I guess I have to paint my headers install them and run the motor to generate the heat for baking the paint onto the surface.

Has anyone done this before ? Any advice before I dig into it?

Rust Oleum High Heat 248903 Flat Black

If you heat up the can by placing it in a pot of hot water for 10 or so minutes the paint will spray out considerably more evenly....

re-installing and curing them with the heat on the inside comes on too quickly. Your full header doesn't reach the required temp either (otherwise you'd be melting plastics constantly.

I've used the stuff before, and it will flake off if you try to do it in anything but an oven. Perhaps you could contact a local powder coater and bargin to use their oven.... or better off, just have them pc it, wouldn't be too expensive.

I dunno what you guys are talking about, this paint is not meant to be baked on, only to withstand high temps after air drying 1-2 hrs...

Well on the can under the "Directions" section it states that after 1-2 hrs it's dry to touch but then you have to proceed to curing.
They give two options:
1) Items off vehicle - Bake at 250F, 400F and 600F with 30min cool down intervals
2) Items on vehicle - Run vehicle at idle 10min and 20min and then run at normal operating conditions for 30min all steps with 20min cool down intervals in between.

If you don't cure then it will flake and look terrible within a week.
