Painting Engine block
Okay, I just got my block back from the machine shop, baked, magna fluxed, bead blasted, bored out 40 over, crankshaft alignment, freeze plugs and camshaft bearing pressed in. I am now ready to paint the engine block. I was wondering if anyone had any good ideas on prepping the engine for paint and what type of paint to use.
Clean with a degreaser simple green or something similar. Mask off what you don't want painted. Auto parts stores have a specific spray paint for engines in many colors. Have some fun be creative with the colors. I went black no problems two coats. I also used an aluminum color on the intake trans and transfer case.
