I finally got round to painting my pipes... Did the LC and the F1 at the same time with KBS eXteme:

They say:

“Guaranteed not to burn off!
XTC is a high temperature / heat resistant coating formulated specifically to protect metal surfaces operating at temperatures from 260°C – 812°C.”

The first part got me in... We’ll see.

Nice job saw that paint online myself was wondering what it would be like.
Is it a satin or slight sheen hard to see in the picture I was trying for a slight sheen.

Thanks Rob, its a funny thing. Its defo a very low sheen satin as it sits, and its also a little 'lumpy' as you can see in the photos, but they do say that once heated it flows and sets up, that should take care of the lumpyness and also I would think make it more satin'y, but I wont know until I run the F1 whos pipes I also painted yesterday. That bike would have been a runner again today but I had issues with my pressure testing kit and am waiting for some silicone to set up now around the tyre valves, so... long story short, I may get another chance to test it next week...
