Is there a DIY ceramic paint that I can apply myself to steel and aluminum parts?

I've used the DupliColor hi-temp ceramic spray paint and had pretty good results with it. The key is to let the parts air dry for a day or so then bake the painted parts in an oven @450F or so for an hour or two. Then shut off the oven and let the parts cool down inside the closed oven.

Roger, do you have a separate oven just for your painted items?!?

you think this stuff would hold up on exhaust heat shields?

Nope, just do it in the regular oven. If you let the paint fully dry there is not a lot of fumes off of it. Usually do it on a warm day with the windows open. There is a bit of odor for the first 30 minutes or so, then nothing.

I did the two EGR block off plates on my '85 engine header, this photo was after about 8 years use:

I sanded those down and repainted them and they still look like the day I put them back on and that has been 2-3 years now.

That is an LC header and it came already ceramic coated.

I would recommend that you use an electric oven just in case the paint was not throughly cured. I've heard of more then once of gas ovens exploding.
