If you don't mind the flat look, try painting them with bbq grille paint. Did that to a set and entire exhaust system and it still looks like freshly painted to this day

I had my headers sand blasted to get them clean as a whistle. Than i followed the directions on the vht can to the t. I sprayed them than had them placed in a baking oven in a 3 step heat /cool down process, and they came out durable and heat resistant. Follow directions and you will be rewarded.

On the back of the VHT flameproof silica -ceramic coating can. It is good between 1300-2000*F (704-1093*C) It has very detailed instructions...great product.

Off the vehicle:bake at 250*f for 30 minutes. Cool for 30 minutes. Bake at 400*f for 30 minutes. Cool for 30 minutes. Bake at 600*f for 30 minutes.Cool for 30 minutes.

If you want the flat black look and live near a John Deere store get the Black Muffler paint. Had my old headers blasted and used this paint with very good results.
