AW: [DML] Painting the intake manifold



I have sand blasted and clear coated my intake and valve covers on
my car and on a second one and have seen it on other cars, too.

Nothing burned away so far and it still looks like new after 10k miles.
And it wasn't even a "high temperature paint".

Even the exhaust manifolds still look pretty good after painting them
with that silver stuff from POR15 (in this case high temp paint of course).
That won't last forever, that's for sure.
But that's something totally different compared to the intake and valve
covers.

List:

I'm looking at painting my intake manifold and valve covers to spruce up the
look of the engine a little bit.  However I'm not sure what paint to use.
I've found a couple posts in the archives about using hi-temp paint only to
have it burn away in a few minutes.  But this could be for a number of
reasons like improper preparation, etc.  Anyone have any experience with
this?  If so what paint did you use?  Any special preparation?

Thanks,
