Re: AMC Engine Colors

When I did the new engine a couple months ago I looked at the AMC colors and said NO WAY. Did my 258 in dark Ford blue, it is a cool color. Heres a pic right after it was done.

Re: AMC Engine Colors

I painted mine cummins tan so it didn't matter if it was clean or muddy, it still looked the same.
