I am in the process of restoring my '65 GTO and am looking for information on the engine and engine bay restoration details. I need to know what paint to use, what needs to be painted what doesn't.

Any help would be appreciated.

Engine bay will be flat black or suede, and the engine is Pontiac Blue which is very close to aqua. The later year engines were painted metallic blue, but I believe for 65 it will be the aqua color. Paint the block and heads this color. Valve covers will be either flat black or chrome and the exhaust manifolds will be some sort of shade of gray.
