Engine paint
« on: Monday, 03 April 2017, 06:22 pm »
Ok Guys I have used PJ1 Satin Black a few times for my Engine wondered what others have used and how good it was?
Not sure if this should have went in Cleaning and Polishing but am sure Admin will sort it ;)

Hi BG,
I used Halfords own Brand gloss Black Engine paint last Year and it's held up ok.
NB Casings are powder Coated!

I've used loads of it Hammy, link pipe, down pipes and rocker trim to name a few. Great stuff 👍

PJ1 Satin Black was great stuff, but you can't get it in the UK any longer due to "Elf n Safety"

I use Techcote Satin Black now and it's good stuff..Not quite as good as the PJ1 though.

The silver paint on my cam cover is flaking so is PJ1 satin black suitable to use?  :undecided:

@shelbycelica  :frustrated:
Hopefully you find a better solution
Good luck
