Repainting Exhaust Manifolds

I pulled my exhaust manifolds this winter and was wondering how I should go about repainting them bad boys. Any recommendation on a paint that will withstand the heat on the lower part of the manifolds. I plan on taking a wire brush and getting all the loose rust off.

Any tips on primer/paint??

I see Discount Inboard Marine sells PCM Black Paint for that purpose.

I am not sure if it is the same think you can pick up at Wal-Mart or not.

I picked up some engine paint from O'Reilly to do my intake manifold. It had some sort of ceramic component in it recommended for high heat applications.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
