I'm not sure if you got around to doing this dark, and I know this is an old post... but honestly they have high temp paints that are well up to 400 degrees, just do a semi gloss color. Probably a 2 gloss (1-3 scale) and then clear coat it with a high temp clear coat, and it will gloss it over real niceeee.

If possible though, i'd have someone spray it for you, unless you already have a HVLP gun, or another gun of some sort.

It's funny how BBQ paint probably gets used for more things other than actually refinishing BBQs lol

i would consider powerdercoat too, should stay nice and shiny! but still might be a tad warm for it.
