Engine Paint -- What Color and Who Sells

Where can I find the correct color for a 67 Pontiac motor and who sells a good quality high temp paint? Is the same color used for the tranny as well?

I used 500 degree Plasti-Kote 227 Pontiac Metalic Blue on my engines and sprayed the transmissions with aluminum spray paint,

Wow. That looks fantastic!

Where can I get the Plasti-Kote brand paint and how much can I expect to pay?

And hey, thanks for the link. This looks to be very helpful. Much thanks!

One other question -- will I need to use primer?

You can find it at Performance Years for $6.00 a can, if you use a primer use a high heat gray like Plasti-Kote 228 for engine and transmission, click on the picture



Also, Year-0ne sells Dupli-Color for a little more

It is the correct shade. It will turn slightly greenish after years of hot/cold cycles. I overhauled my '67 in 1988, and did a cyl. head swap last year. I still had paint left over from the rebuild 20 years prior, so I used it on the new heads. It was noticeably more blue than the block. But, it will change a bit in the next few years. Like ivory....mellows over time.
