Question

Does anyone know where to buy hi-temp engine paint in custom colors? I want to re-paint the engine to match the car, 74 Porsche-Guards Red. Some people have told me that the same paint I used on the car would work but, I am afraid it will burn off or discolor. Any thoughts?

Thumbs up

Normal paint will hold up fine, I've had it on my engine for sometime now and I know of many others who have done the same.

I painted my block BRIGHT yellow 5 years ago.
I used VHT yellow hi temp paint as a base then used my bright yellow as a topcoat. 5 years and still bright as ever. Sean

Just like Mark said, I had a co-worker use car paint on his and it seems to be doing fine.

Cool

I like SAyers69's idea, use a Hi-Heat base coat that is close to your Guards Red, and then spray on the actual Guards Red as the top coat. Just be absolutely sure that the two paints are compatible, maybe you can try painting something other than the engine with both coats first to make sure that there is no adverse reaction.

We usually just give engines a light coat of DP Epoxy primer then your normal automotive paint(PPG, ect.). Holds up better than ANY spray bomb.
