You can't get it in CA, make a run over to Nevada and they have it at any John Deere store. Take a look at my photo album, thats what I painted my car with.<a href="http://hotrodders.com/cgibin/album/album.pl?album=00001849&page=2" target="_blank">My photo album</a>

Thanks to you drgnwgn (again), I've decided to paint my '54 F100 JD Blitz Black. I didn't know it existed. The frame is already painted with JD Gloss Black. I love the stuff. I painted my boat trailer with it seven years ago, and every once in a while I scrub all the Mississippi river mud off of it and it shines like new. So, if the Blitz Black does just as well, that's what I'm gonna do.
Stays in my black and crome theme too.

I looked at your album too. Nice car, and very unique. From your name I was thinkin you had a Ford 289 under the hood, but it ain't so. So I gotta ask. What is it? Is it a Stude 289? I know nothing of Studes, except that we had one when I was a kid.

I shot a Malibu Wagon I had with JD semigloss black...tough as nails. I was about $25/gal.
Didn't look bad either.
Later,
WEIMER

Sorry for the late reply, I've been gone for while. Well, its a studebaker 289 bored .030 over with KB pistons, R-3 valve springs, erson cam,R-3 intake, headers, water pump and blower setup. It is almost a complete R-3 motor minus the heads. I just put in my 4th tranny in 17 months...I'd say it puts out a decent ammount of power (probably about 300 to the wheels, but thats just a guess).

How much blitz black do you think it would take to paint a t-bucket with a pick-up bed. I was going to use primer but this sounds much cooler.
Thanks Again,
Cory

Drgnwgn, it's easy to tell you like doin things the hard way. Nosiree, no small block Chevy for you. Nice.
Anyway, I do occasionally lurk at the swap meets. I'll keep an eye out for some of them R-3 heads that would complete yer car. I have no idea what they look like, but I do see a Stude every once in a while, and I can ask the owner.

Barz, I bet you could paint your bucket with a quart. Make sure to use the reccomended thinner for the blitz black.
Busted Knuckles, I can get some repro heads for that motor for only about $3000 (hahahaha). But the originals are really hard to find since only about 130 pairs were made and most remaining pairs are accounted for either in museums, collections or private stashes. I think I might just take a set of heads that I have and machine the heck out of em.
