On my last merc I just used Caliper paint from local car shop, wire brushed them and painted them! They were put on same day too.

Sure someone has a more precise method though!

Premium quality paint is what you want, many brands available. Enamel paint has good heat resistance but a high heat paint is even better, may have to search for non-black. Prep is everything - clean scruffed up surface is the key.
