My old man is an old school mechanic. He used to use aluminum paint. Not silver, not chrome, aluminum.

I did it on the small block in my old truck and it did great.

Modern head gaskets do NOT require any of that stuff. I used to use aluminum paint on HG years ago as well. I don't use ANYTHING on these modern gaskets.
