Engine Paint Supplier Options
Visitor George Risley, restoring his D24, provided some additional information about the different paint options for painting the engine block. He tested the Hirsch and POR 15 aluminum paints for color match to the original mopar silver. The Hircsh HI-Temp exhaust was very close, a litttle brighter than original. For block, head and other lower temperature areas the POR15 Engine Enamal (600 degree) was the best match, with a slight gray cast. The Hirsch 600 degree and other local rattle cans (Plastic Cote, Tempo, etc.) were all too gray. The Hirsch has a glossy smooth finish while the POR15 has a satin sheen look (600 degree paints).
"Unpainted" Engine Paint Options
As noted above some items are left unpainted. In this unprotected state they will quickly rust. I have tried several options with good results. My local Orchard Home Supply sells an Aervol engine enamel. The color is "Cast Iron Gray" and looks very good when applied to an "unpainted" part. They in fact look like they don't have any paint! A second option is powder coating. It is very durable but more expensive. I recently saw a set of wheel cylinders in "Cast Iron" powder coat that had been applied using the Eastwood system. They looked almost indistinguishable from a non-coated one and would never rust. Downside to this approach is the cost of entry for the Eastwood system, over $150.00, plus the consumables.
