I used high temp POR-15 on my Mustang headers and it looks great and holds up to the heat, it comes in different colors, including black

Powder coat would probably be a good idea because of all the abuse it will get behind the tire

When I Hurculiner-ed my bed a couple of years ago and had some left on the roller, I ran it over my exhaust tip

No prep, just ran it around, adhered well and looks good even today!
