Here's one thread about painting them:

Paint the Inside of My New Stove?

I painted the inside of my brand new Hyfire II prior to lighting the first fire this season. I'll let everyone know the results at the end of the season.

Maybe try a ceramic automotive exhaust header paint. They are not cheap, though.

I haven't run my stove full tilt yet but the paint inside the stove is holding up so far. There is a little blistering right over the grate, on the back wall, but the rest looks good. I did see that some of the corrosion was starting to peek through before I lit the stove. In retrospect, I should have used naval jelly to remove all the rust. POR-15 is suppose to neutralize all rust. In all fairness I did one thick coat instead of two light coats. The paint sticks and is impossible to remove from your skin once it comes in contact. Next summer I'll sand again and make sure all the rust is neutralized with naval jelly and then use a high heat ceramic paint. I need to find a paint I can brugh on. The spray stuff goes all over and taking the stove outside is not an option. My original prep work consisted of washing the inside of the stove with a srayer using a solution of water and baking soada.. I did this 3 times and then sanded.

"The spray stuff goes all over and taking the stove outside is not an option."

Trader, try this. I take my shop vac hose, stick it in an opposite corner and turn it on when spraying. It pulls the the over spray in. I have a extra long hose also (on the shop vac :? ) and keep the vacum in another room, or outside. Nice when removing the ashes also. ;)

Just be careful drawing a potentially explosive paint fume mixture through a vac system adjacent to an electric motor. The filter will probably take care of most of it (especially if it's a little dirty)... but then again be better safe than sorry. :) .

Good point. Kaboom is not a sound I want to hear. Can anyone suggest a paint on ceramic paint?

Lol, good point. I use the vacuum when I pull the ash can. I pull a few inches of ash off the front of the grate causing the dust to fly. Thats how I got using it in such a way. But you are correct, I should have thought about it.

Some of my friends in the Chicago area Corvair Club make a contest of having vacuum cleaners explode. The idea is to have junk vacuums suck in gasoline and see how long they last and how high they rocket. All done in fun from a safe distance in combination with lots of beer. You have to see in person or view the video tape to believe it. Read about it here:
**Broken Link(s) Removed**. The video tape was once sold as a fun raiser. It would make a great YouTube post.
