Re: Let's see those restored stock engines

My '65 Chevy II engine is far from stock, but I tried real hard to give it an OEM-type appearance.

Jeff,

Where did you get your oil filter canister silk-screen painted? It looks great -- much better than the decal I have on mine. Is the canister painted flat, satin, or semi-gloss black? Thank you.

All the best,

Re: Let's see those restored stock engines

That's an NOS oil filter canister, meaning "new old stock", meaning a new GM part made way back then but for some reason never got used. So it has not been repainted or re-screened. The paint is not full flat, but it is closer to flat than semi-gloss.

If you want one very nicely restored, call Richard Fortier at 810-750-1472. They aren't cheap, but they are VERY nice and much more accurate than the stick on label that most places sell. His silk screen is actually crisper and nicer than the NOS pieces are. And you can specify which bolt head marking you want. He's a nice fellow too.
