Question about rust protection

I want to coat a piece of metal with paint so it doesnt rust. It is a random piece of metal i found in my house and it is going to be used to secure a piece inside my headlight. The area that the piece of metal will be touching gets very hot (too hot to touch without burning off your skin). If i use a rust paint on the piece of metal, will the rust paint burn up and cause fumes or not?

Does any paint work as rust protection or does it have to be a rust paint? If i used a high heat primer on the piece of metal, would this also stop rust?

well there is high heat paint, if you go to the local autozone or similar auto store, they should have engine paint or even higher temperature paint for exhaust manifolds.
