Ceramic Coat or High Temp Spray Paint - Entire Exhaust

I have to redo my POS sc project cans as the middle connector is loose. Think I need to add a clamp and redo with more gasket sealant. Anyway, while I'm in there I am thinking of painting the whole set from the header to the dual cans.

If I do go from the header down, I guess I'll need a new gasket. Has anyone just used a high temp matte spray paint? Been reading a few bits and pieces here and there, trying to get some info. Would like to try and get 'er done in a weekend. Guess I'll need to clean em all up too.

Any experience/advice appreciated.

I can highly recommend performance coatings in Auburn, WA for ceramic coating. See my blackout thread, links here and here...

Paint is not going to last, even high temp
Go with ceramic coating.
I had my Triumph headers done at a 'local' place in Concord; had my TL done at Performance coatings as per Flashy's link.
Local was no quicker - just the 'convenience' of not having to box & ship.
