  • Engine Paint

    I noticed on the can this stuff is made exclusively for Snyder's. Have anybody noticed how well it holds up to gas once it's cured? I wish they made it in black..

      The can of Snyder's engine green is the same paint I use, and after it dries it stands up to gas just fine.

          I use Plastikote paints quite often
          These are fuel resistant engine paints

          I use this lacquer T-3 on my carbs

            If you look on Snyders last page of carburetors they also recommend that T-3 ... just sayin!!

          I haven't had any issues with Snyder's paint. I usually buy three cans at a time and request that all three come from the same batch # so there is no color variation.

          When you use rattle can spray paint on small parts, do you first use primer?
          by PepeLoco
          I know the debat regarding Rustoleum vs POR15, but before using your choice of rattle can, do you use primer?
          And what is your choice of rattle can black paint?

          Repairing Burnt or Smoked Engine Green Paint
          by Tom Wesenberg
          I had a great running rebuilt engine in a dog house during the fire. The side of the wood box burned and turned the nicely painted engine to black. I won't have time to work on it for several weeks or months, but was wondering if there is any good chemical to remove the smoke? I'm not sure if the heat turned the green paint black, or if it's just black from smoke, but I'd bet on the heat. The rubber...

          Black paint
          by carolinamudwalker
          I need to paint the panels just above the running boards. The fenders have been painted with a base coat/clear coat. My problem is I don't want to buy a gallon of paint. I think it was Tom W. that recommended a very black paint from one of the auto parts stores but I could not find that thread. I prefer a paint with a hardener for spraying. Any suggestions?

          Carburetor paint - Semi gloss black.
          by Jwmckenzie
          Looking for real life experience painting carbs with semi-gloss black.

          Snyder's sells a Seymore Hi-Tech Lacquer for this purpose, but the data sheet says it is not resistant to gas.

          Search on this interweb thingie, suggests I need an epoxy or urethane.

          by Flathead
          Any recommendations on what paint to use on the gas gauge numbers? Will the old airplane dope stuff work? Thanks in advance.

          Another couple paint questions
          by wrndln
          I need to touch up a few very small flaws in my front fenders. These are not the colorsanding break thru's I recently posted here on VFF. These are about the size of a straight pin's head. The fender are painted with PPG Concept 9300 black. I have the same 9300 black paint I am going to use to touch up the fenders. My question is: Will the paint I use to touch up the very small flaws work OK...

          Bratton's Engine Spray can paint
          by Steve Plucker
          I guess there is no more of the Engine Spray Paint at Bratton's. Walt told me today that there is no more in the spray can because the factory burned down.

          And they are NOT getting any more from what I was told.

          BUMMER! That was some great paint!

          I have just enough to do my block to match the rest of the "green" parts! But if you have an extra unopend...

          Engine paint
          by Blown Gasket
          Last month when I had the engine out I pressure washed it and painted it. I wanted to stay close to the original color green and with my color blindness picked one I thought looked original. It is hard to see colors on the computer I know but here is how my engine looks. It is 100% acrylic semi gloss latex so it is water clean up. It brushed on easy and so far looks great. $17 a quart and it goes...

          Paint in "Rattle Cans"
          by Bobm90
          I have always used paint in so-called rattle cans whenever painting metal objects was desired due mostly to the fact I never had a desire to own paint spraying equipment or had something large enough to require it, also I have - NO SKILLS. Although many people use good old Rustoleum I have never been a fan because it takes forever to dry to the touch, always seems soft unless it drys for days, scrapes...
