Gas fire external temperature


Hey guys. I recently bought a fire the same as this one from ebay
http://www.adverts.ie/fixtures-fittings ... re/1699967
I only intend to use it for one or two winters until i can afford to get a decent one as other home projects are eating up most of my cash just now. ( I'm sure i'll be back here over and over again during the course of a kitchen refit).
I want to paint this fire. I looked at high temp stove paints which need to reach 190 degrees c to cure. Im not sure the outer bits of this fire will achieve this and ive read that the paint is delicate and susceptible to peeling or scratching if uncured.
My other option is to use 'hammerite direct to rust' metal paint which can withstand temps to 93 degrees c. This is my preferred option as it primes, treats rust and coats all in one application.
What do you guys think?
Thansk in advance for any good advice given
