I tried that POR and it looked pinkish and it didn't go on well at all. I took it all off. It seems there are a couple of favorites but I used Aervoe and it looks right on to me.
i just repainted the engine in my 67 rs/ss and used seymour. according to jerry m, it is the closest to orig. EN-48 is the color code. you can order online at www.seymourpaint.com. i sound like a commercial
Quanta (www.quantaproducts.com) also makes Chevy Orange that's an accurate hue and isn't quite as glossy as most of the others; very similar to Seymour Chevy Orange.
I believe the quanta paint is seymour and they use their owe quanta labels
... and isn't quite as glossy as most of the others; ....
Is it recommended to use a base coat high temp primer or something similar to get a durable long lasting top coat? Would the primer will tend to "fill-in" or soften the texture of the block and heads? Rattle can paint tends to spray on thicker, correct?
JohnZ/Kurt, I notice in their pdf for engine enamels www.seymourpaint.com/hi_tech_engine_enamels.pdf that they quote it as 'High Gloss'Do you consider even Seymour's paint as being a bit on the glossy side compared to factory?
Cheers John, would you rate the Quantra as semi-gloss?
I know there are a few threads on this same topic but they seem to be scattered & hard to trace. Does anyone have detailed pics of a completed small block (350) they would care to share? I am looking for detail on what should and shouldn't be painted.
Jerry,This is exactly the detail I was looking for. Thanks for the Lucas link!
