Engine paint

Recommended Posts

I need to paint a new water pump.  Any preferences out there for a brand of orange that is close to original?

Thank you

I like POR 15 engine paint. Brush it on and it flows out like it was a spray job. The color is really a good match

I remember my 71 engine was a much Redder orange than older Chevy engines. About that time they started to remove the lead form paint and the new color may be a result of that.

I worked at E.I. DuPont Automotive finishes in Michigan (in the 80's) and was able to mix my paint and I used the older formula and it was, is way more orange but I like it.
