heat resistant paint works quite well, just be carefull when using metallic style heat proof paint, its alot harder to spray metalic flakes tend to swim around on the parts

I find building it up with a few dust coats works well ( as in very thin coats ) build it up slowly...

VHT stuff is really good, but make sure you thoroughly clean it and prepare it well, sand down the roughness if u want a really super smooth finish and use plastic primer on plastic parts and finish it all off with a nice clear coat as well..

i got mine done professionally, just cuz the colour i wanted was almost the same in a can as to get it done! lol
