Strangely enough, I have a can of this very brand within reach of my computer. (We have a wood stove.) I'd be curious to know how it works on the pipes. Actually, the Stove Bright web site suggests engine and engine manifolds as a possible use.

<BR>Hmm... what about red, would that be too La Cucaracha? :-D

Does anyone have pictures of this paint on a Speedmaster?

Do you need to use primer and/or use 4-0 steel wool on the pipes before painting them?

Well I just purchased the STOVE BRIGHT in Satin Black, so I guess we'll see in about a week.

Any stove or bbq paint should do just fine. I would avoid header or engine paint as it will not withstand the temp's that bbq and stove paint will.
Well this paint is made for woodstoves up to 1200 degrees so I believe it will be ok. They make it in Flatblack and Satin black and I thought the Satin would look nice.

The metallic black might be interesting.When I first painted my pipe,I used Duplicolor engine enamel in gloss black.I liked the way it looked,but it blistered up and burnt at the collector. The flat BBQ Rustoleum on there now is working good,but I`d like to gloss up the Thrux can a bit. I`ll give this stuff a try.Is it only available on-line? :???:

Can someone jump in with what prep is required :???:

I am thinking that spray paint over chrome is not going to adhere too well............

They will need to be sanded to take the paint and then wipe them down good.

this seems like a good alternative to blue chrome and ceramic coating. get a good foundation paint job and just touch up the black when needed. seems like a lot less hassle and better looking. though i will add the black ceramic d n d's from newbonneville.com

you will need to kill the chrome's shine in order to let the paint key to the metal. Sandpaper is good for that.

note the paint is designed for ferrous metals (chrome and its substrate are non-ferrous) so there could be issues with it flaking over time.

See my reply above... and don't use primer, do follow the directions on the can.
