hey folks,
I just painted my sidepipes and pretty much not satisfied with the results, surprise surprise!
After doing some research on paint I found a product by Superior Industries called Zithron Series 900. Extreme Heat paint that comes in aerosol can and also paint on by brush.
Has anyone used this product on there sidepipes? Are you satisfied? How long does the color last?
Any insight will help, ceramic coating is not an option for this budget.

I have used stove/grill flat black with good results. Spray thin even coats on freshly sandblasted pipes. It looks good for around 4 yrs. Cheap if you can blast your own pipes. Mine are ready for a repeat!!

That's what I used as well, however I only sanded down the rust and ruffed the surface.

I would give the hi temp cerakote a shot. Paints right on. Guys put it on barrels and suppressors that can get cherry hot. The hi temp stuff also has the side benefit that doesnt need to be baked and air dry cures. It also doesnt have an activator IIRC.

I just reread the orig post and saw that that ceramic is out of the budget. How much are you looking to spend? I have my pipes black ceramic coated and they still look great. The cerakote cost $138 a qt or $78 for a pint. Id have to see what the coverage is but I know its very light coating. I would imagine that you would get plenty of coverage with that amount and it can be DIY.

The pipes are old, and funds are thin lined limited. Just need to make these puppies last a year before going to a whole new set and ceramic.
This is something to really consider for the pipes, especially at the 90 degree angle to where rust and pits start. Thanks!
