    Default Body Paint??

    so I am still planning my engine build and started to wonder about painting it, internet seems to go both ways on wether regular body paint will work or not.

    has any one tried this? I have leftover yellow from painting mort and it will also make more horsepower if it is yellow!

    Good question, but all I have is an opinion, not any facts. I suppose a lot of the real answer would pertain to what kind of paint it is

    2K works well. Other wise you're best to use engine enamel, imo.

    cheers

    edit; I can't comment on others, as I haven't used acrylic nor air dry enamel, on my motors.
