    I'm not sure what code the red is but its very bright and glossy. Suspension will be brushed on POR-15 Oldsmobile engine gold, engine/calipers will be VHT graphite HWP102 rattle can.

    Quick Update. The POR 15 turned out like crap, I thinned it too much when I sprayed and got a case of the runs. Im letting it dry so I can sand the runs down. Im thinking of not trying the POR15 Gold again, instead I found this..... HI-TECH® ENGINE ENAMELS - Seymour of Sycamore (Seymour EN-50) I know I can paint better with a rattle can and this is supposed to be a match for Oldsmobile gold engines. Anyone ever used it before?

    should have added some enamel hardener.when i paint my engines i preheat them and then spray then put in my powdercoat oven and cure.so it's easy for me to get several coats in minutes.

    Another update. Things are going well, my gold suspension components turned out good but the color match is not perfect. Engine painting and replacing the hardware turned out well. I'm now waiting on a truck load of bearings. Click image for larger version.
