I used the 'Aluma Blast' paint, didn't need clear, very durable. Not sure if I got from Eastwood or on line. Great finish, color is more like cast aluminum

Garage
I was told by the guy who built my tranny, and engine NOT to blast the case...my case was brand new, I cleaned it thouroghly, then painted it with Aluma-blast (EASTWOOD)...looks great. "If you blast it, you will never keep all the media out". That was enough to scare me......just sayin' Eric

Eric, I agree. I only used a 3M pad on the outside of the case, wipe down with a degreaser and paint.
