Default Re: I want to paint my engine

I heard of people using black BBQ grill paint, and it holds up very well. I used duplicolor engine enamel (withstands 500 degrees) on the engine, and duplicolor flame proof I think its called, that can withstand around 2000 degrees, and is ceramic, on the exhaust. It does make the engine look a lot better. Before you paint it, just be sure there is no grease, oil, or any other residue on the metal, and clean it well. Also remember to use masking tape on anyplace you don't want paint, like the intake, and exhaust holes, spark plug hole, etc. Apply it in a few coats, waiting between coats, but read the directions on the can to see what it says. Any auto parts store should have a good choice in high-heat paints.
