I'm looking for a high temperature green paint to use on my exhaust manifold. I don't want to porcelainize.
It needs to be a gloss paint that will closely match the Hart Parr green-( Martin Senour 53-8753 ) which is darker than John Deere green.
I've looked everywhere.    Any body out there know of paint that will work ??

Thanks..

I don't think there is any paint that will really hold up for long on an exhaust manifold of a gasoline engine - maybe a diesel as they run cooler. It would probably stay on the intake runners of the manifold. The aluminum hi temp paint may hold up for a while. If you find a green hi temp paint it will probably darken right away before it turns black and then burns off completely.

I would have to agree with Blake on this one. I've painted mufflers and elbows, that are quite a ways away from the manifold on my semi trucks before, and it has burnt off in no time at all. It says it will take 1100 or so degrees of heat, and according to the pyrometer I never let it get over 900 and it still comes off...

I'm thinking I did see a green hi-temp at value, I think rust-oleum, but can't say for sure. It may hold up to the heat from your exhaust, as long as you don't intend on running it long periods, or working it.

Best of luck, and if you find something that works let us know please.
