In Hemmings motor news a fellow by the name Hirsch sells all types of paint.He is in New Jersey and mail orders.I can tell you his stuff is like armorplate.It really lasts. By the way I always thought things were painted black to hide leaks.In 1958 for example when Ford came out with the 352 engine it sweated severly around the intake.So in the middle of the production they went from blue to black.They didn't go back to blue to 1965 when they had a real good pcv system.Today almost every engine is black,even if it is aluminum they paint it black.
