Engine Paint

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, i'm in the middle of rebuilding my XR400 motor and i'm ready to put it back together. While it's out of the frame i'd really like to paint the block. Does anyone have any bad experiences with this? What paint do you recomend?

TIA,

JR

Whats the condition of the engine case like? Does it need painting because of surface corosion or stained or because you want to? Do you want to paint it a cirtain colour? or just gray or silver? Any high temp engine enamel should do it.

Ive got a little Suzy GN250, We rebuilt the engine, and we didnt like the look of the timing covers because of surface corrosion, they had half the origonal factory varnish, but it was half powdery, pitted and corroded. So I sand blasted them both an bought spray metal varish (clear laquer) and painted tham cearfully, and they came up very nice! Alot better than before!

Another thing you clould do is just get them glass bead blasted, alot finer finish than sand blast.
