Irfan, you can coat it with VHT flameproof. Most of my exhaust is done this way. Costs 8 bucks at any parts store.

Go to Advanced Auto Parts they have same things you could paint it. Goes with a flat black. Do a few coats. But sand it down first.

No sanding needed. It'll stay on so long as the surface is not overly dirty. A few coats is best.

Any parts store, Irfan......

It comes in a bunch of different colors. I used their dark grey, which in actuality was a gray. Not my first choice but I've grown used to it. I would go with a black.

and i thought you could use a paint brush a few strokes and it would have been done :)
