Engine Paint - What to Use?

PostPost by: "nebogipfel2004" » Tue Dec 21, 2004 9:21 pm

Hi All,
I went to buy some Hermetite engine paint and apparently it is no
longer available?

Has anyone tried Smoothrite? They do a nice grey/blue colour.
Obviously it has to take a fair bit of heat on the engine block!

Plasti-kote makes "New Ford Gray" engine enamel good for up to 500 degrees F.
The color number is 216 and a 11 oz can will do two or more blocks. The
color is so close let's put it this way. You'll never lose any points at a
concourse. About $6.
