Default Exhaust Painting - 400HO/500HO?

Looking to paint the exhaust on my 400HO next spring - has anyone done this to their 400/500? What I want to know is will those heat shield bolts snap? Thinking I may try to sand that part of the pipe between shield and shoot paint down between the shield.

if I get the atv good and hot, wonder if the bolts will bavk out without snapping?

I sanded mine down real good and used a baroque black paint so it would hold better. I would guess you would need a good torch set(with oxygen) to get the bolts hot enough to take the shield off. you might try PB blaster spray on them and let them set after a few different spraying to eat the rust if you don't have tanks to heat it up.

you can try the propane torch, but I would be surprised if it comes out with out using an acetylene/oxygen torch, but good luck.
