    Mee too...darkens some like Jim says. The ceramic content holds up well on head exhaust area too.

    Roughly how many cans of the Rustoleum does it take to paint all the Buick red parts for a single engine?

    No one has tracked how many cans of spray paint it has taken them to paint their engine?

    Smokey15 So old that I use AARP bolts.

    The amount of paint would be determined by how many coats one desires. I am fussy and I use 1 1/2 to 2 cans.

    I got some sample chips of the KBS - I might try it. Looked pretty good but I am not an expert on that red.
    Tried some red tractor paint from Tractor Supply and I liked that too.

    Which color would you choose? The Buick red in the color sheet looks a little bit dark?

    That buick red is pretty close. I recall from 'back in the day', that the buick red was significantly darker than what is available today. I have yet to see the correct color in the parts stores.

    I'm using Krylon Banner Red. It's really really close to what the motor was before and I am sure it's the factory paint on it. It is a bit more glossy but I dont know how shiny it was before it got covered from front to back top to bottom in grime.
