Like Pappy said, after you get the holes drilled and the welding done (if needed) do a burn. The outside paint should bubble and I used an abrasive 3M drill attachment to "sand" off the remaining residue. There are also paint removing flapper wheels for angle grinders that work really well. Then, it's ready for your hi-temp paint.
