    I think any paint will wear through, just at different rates. Use a high temp paint like vht or similar, make sure surface is preped well. Apply thin coats, and make sure you bake it afterwards. If the misses won't let you use the oven, either throw it on the bbq or wait for her to go out and then use the oven
