"Chevy Orange" Engine Touch-Up Paint

Doesn't anyone sell the Chevrolet Orange high-temp engine paint in small touch-up bottles? I have a couple little chipped spots that I want to touch-up, but all I can find is aerosal cans. The spray can won't work for me at all for obvious reasons. Thanks.

Re: "Chevy Orange" Engine Touch-Up Paint

Take the spray can and spray some.into a plastic cup wile holding a paper towel over the top of the.cup. Then it will accumulate into the bottom of the cup and you can use a small brush or a Q tip.
Might want to have a glove on the hand you are holding the spray can in.

Re: "Chevy Orange" Engine Touch-Up Paint

Rick...looks like you only need a few brush strokes worth of Eastwood Orange to cover that up. You can PM me if you like. I have some leftover if you're not too far away... (so you're a Fender bass guy... )

Re: "Chevy Orange" Engine Touch-Up Paint

I just spray the paint into the cap and use a little model brush to paint it. If it's a rusty area try to scuff it up a bit and the main thing is use a good degreaser all around the area before you paint it.

100%

I use red brakleen to prep the area and sometimes a fiberglass pencil brush to scuff up the area I'm touching up.

You can buy a pint of it from Amazon:




Or, you might give these guys a call (they are located in my city) to see what they have - they have been around for a very long time.

Re: "Chevy Orange" Engine Touch-Up Paint

Thanks, Brian. In checking, I see, on-line, my local HomeDepot has Rust-Oleum Chevy Orange AND Chevy Red-Orange. My picture kinda looks Orange more than Red-Orange.

Re: "Chevy Orange" Engine Touch-Up Paint

Go to your local car parts place, autozone, advanced, napa, etc. They usually carry Duplicolor engine enamel. DE-1620 is what I use, goes on smooth. If you're using a paint brush, spray it in a cup, cap, etc and let it sit, checking on it till it gets to the right consistency. The VOCs need to dissipate enough to thicken the paint to where it will lay down nicely with a brush. If you have a craft/hobby store near you, you could also pick up some Testors Orange enamel, it's a close match (and a pack of model brushes if needed).

*EDIT* I did not like how the rustoleum engine paint set, although I use all their other paints and have no issues with them.

Testors on the valvecovers, DE-1620 on the block.

Re: "Chevy Orange" Engine Touch-Up Paint

Thanks, Jeff. I didn't know about letting it sit. Also, I'll try the Testors, two craft stores near me, or the Duplicolor.

I used Duplicolor on my motor when I touched it up. I had a can of the Chevy Orange laying around but it just didn't seem to match. I bought a can of the Duplicolor Red-Orange and it matched perfect. It worked good I put on a couple of coats with a model brush and it just flowed together with no brush marks.

Re: "Chevy Orange" Engine Touch-Up Paint

Thanks, Hank. I'm planning to look for the Duplicolor and the Testors. Not sure if my ZZ427 is regular Chevy Orange or Chevy Red-Orange.
