I think the stove paint is called High temperature paint and would work for covering, ust don't know how it would hold up to any wear.

I usually use High Temp Engine Enamel. You should be able to get it at any Orchard, Home Depot or auto parts store. It holds up well. I've also used it to touch up parts of my truck's frame and it hasn't rubbed off.

i dont think the engine enamel comes in flat black.i was on the duplicolor website and all they showed was gloss and semi satin.
the problem could be that im using my cell phone to search.very stressfull.

yea but the exhaust coating requires the parts to be baked after coated for it to be effective.

Chemically there is likely no difference between flat black stove paint and flat black high temp engine paint.

I used the stove black stuff on my exhaust (2 stroke dirt bike) and it held up well.

You are of course supposed to heat the part you painted up...either by letting it do it on its own or baking it.....before the paint is properly cured.

The expansion chamber on my 2 stroke did get quite hot under normal use...I still have a scar to prove that.

Hey, the real question is what kind of wood are you going to burn??

C'mon, you can't find high temp engine paint? Get out of the pet food isle at the grocery store and go to any auto parts store.

Does anyone buy VN750's that isn't fresh out of diaper training on this forum?
