project is getting clean get clean get it clean if you disassembled in a rebuilding your
engine well it’s probably already gonna be hot tank so you’re miles ahead of the
guy that’s not if you’re not just assembling a rebuilding your engine well
start with a pressure washer and a good organic cleaner to get all that nasty
crud off of the engine block and all the components that you want to refinish
after that nice bath with eastwards chassis clean and some wire brushes will
further get into all the crevices and cracks and really do a nice job of
cleaning and follow that up with eastwards pre-painting prep which sets

never recommend to go paint right on top of bare steel because it Heejun is not
the best so to Cairo spray has a high temperature primer that’s a perfect
ground coat then you follow with the top coat color of your choice the great thing about 2k arrow spray in
the engine paint is that there’s a 650 degree temperature rating so it’s not
gonna cook off right next to your exhaust ports and things like that now if you don’t want to go to Cairo

brush and not a bristle brush that way you don’t brush strokes now engine paint
is not header paint but if you want to take care of your headers and coat them
Eastwood has products specifically for that are designed to withstand those
extreme temperatures so now let’s talk about masking obviously you want to mask
off for a nice clean job especially if you’re using more than one color but you
also want to be very meticulous around your gasketed surfaces and make sure and
mask them off so you don’t have any seal problems or interference between
tolerances such as a carburetor or an upper lower intake manifold now here’s a cool trick this guy has
left his spark plugs in place let’s face it you’re going to replace the plugs
that’s a consumable so he’s left the plugs in place and that’s going to keep
paint from getting down into the sparkplug bore or into the combustion
chamber and that’s never good these are easy to take out and it’s a
simple masking trick so make sure you click the button for more information on

  • Marshall Houston says:

    I have had the eastwood ceramic 2k turn brown and flake off anywhere near exhaust parts- including the crossover ports on the intake- looks terrible! how do I get the coating to perform like it should?

  • Colton Wancho says:

    Painting over bolts and spark plugs is dumb. When removing the boots or plugs the paint has a high chance of cracking or flaking. Even if you don't see it cracked this is how micro cracked lead to rusting poping the paint from underneath. Just do yourself a favor and prep it the right way no short cuts.
