VHT, very high temperature exhaust paint. Available at most good motor spares shops, ie: Halfords, Motosave etc.

"needs painting though" is it unpainted with no protection on it?

Unpainted, exactly as advertised. Not sure about unprotected.

Looks great. will zinc plating prevent it from rusting?

Unfortunately powder coat will burn off, or, at least it did on my AF Clubman :( Or is this some kind of high temp powdercoat?
