My exhaust heat shield needs a repaint.

Anyone have any recommendations on a suitable paint to use and any prep recommendations?

I painted mine with Rustoleum canyon satin black, it seems to be hanging in.
Regards Martin.

I get mine ceramic coated for only about $20-25 a piece and no prep required as that price includes them doing a media blast prior to coating.

Since the ceramic coating is used on headers temperature is not an issue on a heat shield.

Thanks MartinW I saw someone online suggesting Rustoleum Bar-B-Que Black.

Thanks Duck.  That sounds pretty cheap.  Wonder if it is as cheap in Oz?  Will look into it.

Not sure exactly what you're trying to accomplish but to hide minor blems there's also polishes referred to as "stove black" that can help. I use that for scratches on engine covers. Since it's made for wood stoves it holds up to heat well.

and prepping was only a rub over with a very light wet and dry prior to a wipe dry, and dust off; and then spraying the heat shield whilst hanging from a wire coat hanger in the shed.

It is scratched from someone kicking it while it was sitting on the garage floor out of the way!

Thanks Norton71.  Good to know an Ausie available product that someone has used and vouch that it has lasted well  bounce
