engine paint

Howdy- I posted this question on the body/paint section but didn't have a response. I am going to paint my project car Viper Red and want to color match the engine paint. The question I have is this- Is there a heat tolerant paint that I can have mixed to match what the body is going to be? Thanks in advance for your thoughts. Mike

Ive been told just to spray the motor with the same paint that u use on the body. Im just about to that point and am also curious. Ive seen multiple show cars that had the exact match paint. Not sure if they switch to enamel on the motor or stay with bc/cc

This has been discussed at length on this board. Consensus is that the same base-coat/clear-coat you use on the body is superior to any rattle can paint available. Finish will be top notch and catalyzed urethanes will hold up to heat and chemical as well as if not better than 'hot' paint. A step up from there is to have the entire engine powder coated but color match will be a problem there.

Thanks fellows- Being able to use the same paint on the block as the body will make my life a little easier. Your thoughts are appreciated. Mike
