painting engine plastics

i just wanted to know what kind of paint to use? i have some high heat paint 1200degrees that i used to paint my brake callipers... will that do the job? and did you guys paint the top and bottom of the plastics or just the top part which is the one visible?

the 1200 degree will do fine...but dont forget to clear coat or you'll end up doing it again in two months. When i did mine i just did the top and sides. a bit got on the bottom. you can see a pic in my profile or at my car domain site .
