Today's effort with vht gold metalflake out of the can on my 66 383. I think I will add the clear from them as well. With new intake and carb sitting in position.

A $21 makeover.

I painted my 352 FE with KBS Coatings Motor Coater. Oldsmobile Gold.
It held up well during the dyno run.


By the way, Nice Intro Sentium....

It is a Dupont Imron Fleet Color. He just looked at their color book and decided one was too light and the next was too dark, so this is the one he ended up with. Imron sure is durable, we cleaned up the engine when it was black one time with lacquer thinner and it still shined like the day we shot it.

My FE (the one with the Edelbrock VC and Offenhauser Breathers) is shot with VHT primer and several layers of VHT Gold.
The exhaust ports didn't hold during the break-in....

The rest still looks really nice

Yep, the exhaust ports on some brands of engines get hot enough to burn the paint off or change it's color in that area. Same thing is happening to my Son's gold 455 Olds motor, but it is sort of a badge of honor......shows you use the car.
