Painting a Woodcraft stator cover?

Hey all,

I just picked up a Woodcraft stator cover for cheap on eBay because it had some rash on it. It was raw aluminum and I plan on repairing the rash and painting it black. I ordered a new blue slider and gasket from Woodcraft. I have all the skills necessary to do the job but I was going to ask your collective opinions on one thing.

Should I paint it myself with high heat caliper paint (like VHT) or would you pay the dough to have it painted at a body shop. They'll likely do the primer/paint/clear process and I wasn't sure how that would hold up on a part that is going to have some heat to it. I know the VHT will hold up to heat but I also don't know if it will be sufficient to just paint it with that for general wear. I'd go primerless and no clear coat if I do it that way, just several light coats of VHT.

I don't care about the cost too much, but It would likely be $100 or so to paint at the body shop; maybe less because it's a common color (gloss black).

VHT. I baked it today, stenciled the logo, and clear coated it.

Satin black, satin clear. Just like the color option they offered... black case, white lettering, blue skid pad.

Iíll post pics later.
