Anybody paint their fire pan

Bought a newer one, used it and of course it rusts a bit.
Was debating buying some high temp paint and getting after it once I scrape any rust off.
Anybody got a different idea?

I think any paint you put on it will eventually flake off and become MOOP in and off the river.

I had a zippered bag made for mine to keep it in. The bag is large enough to hold the fire blanket too.

I used high heat grill paint for the legs, and the outside surfaces of the pan itself. Hasn't flaked in a season and a half of fairly heavy use as a private boater..... I store the legs inside of the pan, so any microtrash is contained by the pan in travel or ends up on fire blanket. I've seen people use tin foil to line the pan(mostly for heat reflection while cooking) it makes cleanup a breeze, and kept the inside of the pan looking newer.

I use Rustolum high temp BBQ grill paint and it works well. DO NOT paint the Grill!! Nothing lasts forever but it does help.

Did I mention that my XL pan that measures 18x30x4" weighs in at 26lbs?

I still use the Radio Flyer fire pan. It gets a fresh coat of high-temp BBQ paint after every trip, and that has kept it from rusting for twenty years or more.

I was hoping Mogur would chime in. If you haven't seen his firepan it's worth a search. I found a Radio Flyer at a consignment store and there's no lighter pan for the size.

Mogur, got any pics of the Flyer and construction, or does it just sit on the ground? What grill/grate do you use?
Thanks for all the advice thus far.
