Default Satin Black Engine Bay on a Budget?

wht kind of decent paint/clear is out there in small quantities to do the engine bay?

through reading, im going to stay away from the duplicolor stuff. so the question is what would b a decent paint to use and how much does it usually take to do the engine bay(using a 2k paint btw).

thanks for the help.

If you want dull finish John Deere blitz black is the best you can buy!

Check out Eastwood they have an under hood 2k paint kit. Very easy product to mix and spray. I think it's around 60 bucks

What about plastidip? Though maybe that is too flat for your liking.

too easy to take off, especially with the environment inside the engine bay

if only the "hot rod satin black" wasnt discontinued

jet black with a matte clear? or were you suggesting the satin chassis black


also, what would a satin or matte look like with a gloss/semi gloss clear?

Personally I have never used it under those conditions but if you do all your prep work right it shouldn't be a problem. I have seen lots of people paint their engine bays with normal auto paint without any problems.

I got eastwoods 2k ceramic chassis satin black kit that came with their primer as well. I love this stuff!!! I had used por15 in the past and that stuff is junk imo.

It was easy to use--I didn't even thin it and shot with a 1.8 tip. Let me know if you have any questions.

I used some duplicolor black with some satin clear. It's actually held up pretty good. Had it painted for about 10 yrs
