Decided to change the pace a bit today... I cleaned one half of the engine case... taped everything off and painted the case. As you can see I chose a burnt copper color, which will match one of the stripes for the aircraft paint scheme.
I will let it dry over night then bake it at 200 degrees for 1 hour per manufacture intructions. Looks like it turned out nice, We will see how it holds up over time. The VHT engine paint is made to withstand up to 650 degrees F.
