WEIMER is correct, about the high heat, just a selling point. The use of BC/CC is very common anoung street rodders.

I think that the only difference between engine paint and regular paint is the ability to resist gas/oil....not heat like most people think. An engine block does not get that hot...its the exhaust where you would want the high heat paint.
I have seen lots of guys use regular bc/cc that was left over from their car to paint the engine to match.

You can buy engine paint in rattle cans that is factory or you can go to your local jobber and get any color you want for the engine.

I used to use nothing but VHT high heat engine paint. I couldn't find any one day, so I picked up a can of DupliColor engine paint, seems to be as good as VHT IMO.

Best engine paint?
Looking for a Pontiac type blue paint for the engine block and heads. Do the local auto stores sell block paint and what is the best kind to buy. Also heavy coats or a light coat?
