Paint Colour


Recommended Posts

My engine is out to be overhauled. I am planning on painting it. Can anyone suggest as fact, fiction or fantasy wether the acessories (brackets, oil filler and water manifold) were/are/should be painted engine colour or black.

Any comments and or opinions will be considered and appreciated

It depends on whether you want to go back to original colors, if so then you don't have a choice. Personally I like some of the very contrasting colors that were used years ago on engine blocks. I have seen some really striking bright lime greens, but you as owner must decide.

You might Google pictures of engines of the past, you might see what you are looking for. I have had great success with Google when it comes to pictures.

I wish you well, it should be a fun time, FUN IS GOOD!
