For the paint gurus

Bought an aluminized exhaust. Need help from the experts out there that can tell me what prep steps I need to take to paint it black, IE primer /no primer.
Serious paint idiot here and any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thanks guys/girls.

Hmm I never have come across this question. I never paint my exhaust though. High temp primer/paint I am sure. But, Why exactly would you want to paint your exh. system, to hide it? Try the flat black cooking grill paint if you want cheap easy stuff. VHT paints are another you should look into, they are rattle can also.
