Default Painting engine

Decided to paint my engine, it was starting to look a little rough. Used Tremclad and a small brush.

It doesn't look like tremclad is available in the states.

Very nice. Did Sister Susan assist? Perhaps you could come to Cape Cod and show me how it's done.

Nice work, Peter. Next time you are this way you can show me how it is done. Mine is starting to look shabby.

Tremclad is the Canadian version of Rustolium (sp). I mixed a little of the misty grey, with the regular grey, to get the colour close. The original paint has a slight green colour to it, but the Tremclad is just grey, close enough.

Ron, really, paint the bolt heads. I am not trying to compete with your, or Bob Brittan's engine bay. A good man knows when he doesn't stand a chance.

Really Ron your engine bay looked brand new when I saw it, I'm just trying to make mine presentable.
