Should I paint my exhaust??? Cat???

I have the exhaust off and am thinking of sanding it down a bit and paint it. Don't worry, I am not ricing it out I just figure it will last longer with some high temp black on it. Or maybe some ceramic based stuff??? Is there a reason not to do this? What about the CAT?? I think it should be O.K. to paint to and I know they like heat so if the paint seals it in that would be o.k. right??

Doing it today so hurry with the wisdom.

Mine is painted flat high temp black. Was done before i got it. I dont see any problems with it.

Will probably make it last longer.

I painted mine with stove black while I had it off for the clutch replacment. That was 2 years ago and it still looks great.

DO IT!

Mmmm... get a black-oxide kit. Sand it down, apply the oxidizer, then the sealant. Will have the titanium ripple-color effect.

I did this to my rear brake rotors back when i had the '944. They never rusted on the areas i coated, and had a VERY uniquie look to them in the light.

OR

Do the ceramic based paint. that stuff lasts and protects for almost forever
