The hot ticket is powder coating. Much more durable than any paint. Sand blasting is part of the process so any surface rust isn't a problem. Thats my plan for my garage built stand and grain mill, just haven't gone around to it. Its a little bit pricey, but most shops will offer big discounts if you can wait for bigger "runs" of the same color.

Sandblasting & powder coating would be my choice, and so many colors to choose from. ... 32&bih=913
1. 1C
2. 4B
Bottled: Gewurztraminer, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, 16B, 18B, 18E, 19B, 20, 21A, 23, 27
Next: 5C

BEER, a mixture of malted grains, water, hops and yeast, that is transformed through the course of fermentation that transcends the simplicity of those basic ingredients, fundamentally into the drink of life.

use high temp spray paint, oreilly auto carries a lot of colors in both 500 F and 700F
also use rustloeum on any welds prior to painting to catalyze any rust

High temp stove paint is what I used. Good up to 1,200 degrees. Get the glossy. The flat has a lot of residue for some reason.

High temp paint is not flame resistant so it will burn off where the burner is, I'm not sure about powder coating.
