Default heat-resistant paint

A local Midas manager told me to use heat-resistant paint on a new
muffler and tailpipe for my 96 Civic to prolong its life. Has anyone
had success doing this?

No. It's quite a lot more complicated than that.

Did he tell you how to paint the inside - most rust from the inside
out.

Yes, that is very true. I used heat resistant paint on the tail pipes
and resonators of a 1962 E-Type Jaguar, but it is only for cosmetic
purposes. It looks better than the raw iron or steel pipes, and I
suppose it does help in avoiding corrosion, especially if there is
salt on the winter roads. And there were stainless steel pipes
available (Abarth? I don't remember) that would outlast the car. And
if you have a Ferrari there are several $$versions$$ that get points
in the Concours de Elegance (or whatever is the fancy term for "car
show." But for my Honda I just get the factory stuff. There is a lot
of technical stuff involving back pressure and flow through and other
things that I do not understand, so for my Honda I just get the
factory stuff.

How can you tell if a Midas "person" is lying? Their lips are moving!
(just my opinion, of course - I'll relate the reason for me saying
that if anyone cares).
