Engine paint

Post by MobyTheMini »

Evening folks.
Does anyone have any recommendations on engine paint? I see Halfrauds have their own one but I wouldn’t be sure of the quality (mixed reviews). Is there anywhere else in Ireland that stocks good quality red engine paint? Also, does the rocker cover require high temp paint or is hammerite spray suitable?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Ask your local motor or tractor factors. They will probably have something or can order whatever you need.

I used the Eastwood Ceramic Engine paint from Frost. Its brush on and produces a great finish.

Rust-oleum paint is good too, that's what I done my block in, albeit in yellow.

I got my rocker cover powder coated gloss black, but it doesn't get overly hot so shouldn't need any high temp paint.
