Like the valve cover and air cleaner? Are they not supposed to be painted? Mine is all rust covered and such, and I'd love to give it a fresh coat of Old Ford Blue like the rest of my engine. Any ideas? Is the exhaust manny too hot for paint?
They have exhaust manifold paint, check with the Eastwood Company http://www.eastwoodco.com.
Blue exhaust manifolds? In my opinion that would look pretty bad, but you know what they say about opinions.
When the factory painted an engine, the over spray ws the only paint put on manifolds. The balance was left cast color. POR 15 (and others I'm sure), make a cast color product for the manifolds that is excellent. It's expensive, but effective.
