I painted my motor with the POR15 engine enamel and I also painted mt exhaust manifolds with Eastwood high temp manifold paint. Looks great! I hope the paint holds up on the manifolds:yes:
That eastwood stuff holds up really well! My dad used it on several cars in the past and they all looked good several years later!:yes:I painted my motor with the POR15 engine enamel and I also painted mt exhaust manifolds with Eastwood high temp manifold paint.

Kind of cool the way that stuff levels out! When we first used it we had brush strokes all over and thought it looked like crap, the next day we looked at it and it looked perfect, pretty neat stuff!!that's good to know. I really like the way it looks too. It looks like real cast iron rather than paintt.
Ya never know how a paint brushes on till you try it. I use some industrial coating for all my home shop machines and that stuff flows like honey. I will even use a cheap hog hair brush from Harbor Fright (the chip brushes) anymore cause the paint ruins good brushes. Every brush line lays out. Nice and smooth "plastic" looking finish. The stuff is Frazee Aro-plate. I use their primer too which is by far the most solid metal primer I have ever used outside of the ship painting days in the Nav..If I had to do it all over again I would thin it out and spray it:yes: I am not a fan of brushing on paint unless I'm painting base boards in my house
I painted my L6 with it about this time last year. The car only gets driven in the summer but so far there haven't been any issues with it. I think with everything, proper prep is the key.am not familiar with any one using the por 15 enjine paint before. any one use it before and how dose it look down the road? say 3 or 5 years?? some friends have been painting with automotive urithane. cover ports ect with sealed plates sand blast. shoot epoxy primer and then color urithane. works good but some burning near eaxaust ports on some motors like an olds.
like Por 15 products am curiouse about this one
