Where can you find Pontiac engine paint?

Can't find the correct engine paint.

I have looked at AutoZone, Pep Boys, and Kragen and can't find engine paint that is correct. Kragen had one that said it was Pontiac Blue, but it was almost like a Ford Blue. Doesn't even look close. I am looking for the light blue-gray metalic looking paint that is correct for a 70.

Any ideas would be great.

Check with NAPA. They stock Dupont Duplicolor, and if they don't have it in stock they can order it. Make sure you ask for the metallic blue, otherwise you may get the pre 67 eggshell blue. (For my opinion the Duplicolor is a much nicer shade than the plasticoat).

The part number for duplicolor ceramic metalic blue is DE 1616 and this paint resist heat up to 500 degrees. I've used other paints that have burned off of the heads above the exhaust ports and duplicolor seems to hold up better.

The Pontiac Blue that I found yesterday must have been the pre 67 color. I'm off to NAPA after work.

Thanks everyone.

Dale,

I got mine from Eastwood and it was a perfect match. I just checked the site and it appears they have changed suppliers. Hope the Napa stuff does the trick for you.

Thanks guys. I found it at NAPA. I had to go to 2 stores, but the second one had it. Now I just need to get everything cleaned up to paint it.

Bill Hirsch has the correct paint and is very durable. Hirsch Automotive Products

I did not have any luck with Napa or Eastwood
