Anyone paint your engine parts?

Just wondering if anyone paints their engine parts on a rebuild? Attached a few photos of mine so far to share.

Does anyone else have some to share?

I'm no mod but this thread might be better off in the non technical section.

Its a 258 going into a yj but yes I did paint mine.
Its not like I really had a choice though since dry ice blasting my block removed most of the paint and I would never forgive myself for not taking the time to paint it and make it look nice.

That looks nice! Just be carefull not to paint the bosses of the frostplugs, they might fit too tight and lose their function.

I've been sticking to the red and black because those are my jeeps colors

Been using the high temp engine paints from Oreilys. So I hope they stick after it's running again. They will have plenty of time to cure.

Sorry, forget it. I didn't realise you're based in CA.
Frostplugs are disigned to pop out when you neglect your antifreeze in low temp areas and paint can hold them tight.
Again forget it, you are doing a great job!
Tony.

Anyone know where I can get another fitting and vacuum tube for my MAP sensor? The old one was brittle and snapped when I removed the engine.
