Hello,

Just restoring my Red Hot and will be repainting the engine. Can anyone recommend a good yellow engine paint? Not had very good experience with engine paint, fading for peeling off.

Cheers

Ian

POR15 is good. Frost sells it. Hipo Yellow is close enough but you need to note that these enamels dry gloss. The A+ coatings were matt (well, all of mine are).

There's also a POR clearcoat which you could go over the top of the completed engine once built, this would help protect the colour coat from peeling at drillings, sharp edges etc...
