You pay $20 for an explosive device and they give you $15 after the bomb squad takes it from your house. Great deal.

Hmmm... I just painted a new cat back exhaust system the other day with Dupli-Color's "High Heat" primer and finish coat canned spray paint. It says to 1200, not 2000. I noticed no difference between it and other spray paint.
