Parts store... hi-temp engine paint. That's what I always do and it has worked very well for me. I've used both VHT and Duplicolor and never had any problems.

No matter how good of paint you use the surface prep. makes all the difference in how long it lasts. Think of your engine surface as you would the car body or it will start coming off within a year or so.

I've had great results with Dupli-color high temp engine paint. Be sure to degrease it good.

I personally went with black cause orange gets nasty looking after a while.
