What colors are you looking for?

I've used the VHT also, works good. And Por15 engine enamel, but it's limited on temp (350°). Por15 makes high temp but only has three colors.

Not sure of color yet. I like the darker colors of blue. You guys use vht on blocks and accessories? Can krylon be used on the accessories

I use one of those green 3m sanding discs they are badass it will take it down to bare metal then I just use mineral spirits to clean it up also I use a wire wheel to get into those hard to get spots

TX of course
Anyone more sugestions then this? Prep is going to be key I'm sure. I was thinking about wheel acid.

For color I was going to do chevy orange with black piping like fuel lines etc.

I'm just not sure I kind of like the stock sleeper look.
