I am in the process of restoring my 8.2" differential and brake backing plates. I am wondering if there is a particular semi-gloss black paint in a rattle can that would stand up to the heat generated by the brakes and transferred to the backing plates and also work well for the differential?

Other members will probably have (likely better) suggestions that are more automotive-oriented; but I now use Krylon High Heat Max for pretty much all high-temp applications.

They claim up to 1,200 F intermittently, and 600 F continuous.

Lays down well. Adheres well. Easy to control (and keep thin, or keep coating to get it thick). And, short of welding or taking a torch to it, I haven't had any burn yet - anywhere. Engines, brake parts, charcoal and gas grills, etc.
I have not tried it on something like exhaust headers, but I did paint an entire ATV exhaust system with it (with 'copper' left over from a charcoal grill - it's hideous :D). ...Still doing just fine.
