    Hi im new to the forum and in modifying car and stuff. Does anyone know if a caliper paint works on a header cover? I have a little bit of paint left from my caliper and wanted to paint my rusted header cover.

    Excuse my nood question.

    Welcome to CStC!

    Yes. You want High Temperature Paint on your Header Cover.
    See my Stock Header Cover painted here:

    I Advise you Prep the surface first. Use Rust Remover and a wire brush.
    I use 2 coats of VHT High Temp Primer. 3 coats of VHT High Temp Engine Enamel and finish
    with 3 coats of VHT High Temp Clear Coat
    . You can find them at your local Auto Store or Online.

    Caliper Paint is also High Temp so you can experiment with that. Regular paint won't hold up.
