Engine painting

I want to paint my engine, asthetics is everything you know. Being an aluminum block, it will probably require some special prep and/or paint. Any suggestions? The color I want to paint it is neon green, so a standard engine paint is out of the question.

Re: Engine painting

i asked my uncle about painting my 1.6 l block wile i had it out of my sammy and what he had to say on the issue was ...if it came factory with paint ,paint it ,if not ,don't.
i think it had to do with the fact that the little engine gets hot ,and needs to breathe anyway it can .

Re: Engine painting

I had the same thoughts about the overheating zukikid, but I'm putting in a larger radiator, I'm in search (junkyard digging) of the perfect one. I'll even add an oil cooler if I have to.

Re: Engine painting

I just had my 1600cc motor painted and to make the paint stay I used a special aluminum conditioner my shop picked up at an aviation parts dealer, scuffed with scotch brite,primed it with chromate-free yellow primer and used the urethane enamel paint used on catepillars tractors so far the paint hasn't scorched or flaked off

Re: Engine painting

Go to http://www.por15.com/restorationkits.html Go down about half way on the page and you'll see the engine paint, don't know if they have the color you want!
