Found an engine paint I like

Painted the wheels and engines on a couple of my Vulcans with a hi-temp paint. Ive used several over the years, but they always seem to be too bright. I found some with a little ivory in it which toned down the brightness of the silver and made it look like factory. Im very pleased with the results. Ill put the paint in the next post as important not outside to see what its name is right now.

Heres the results.

The high temp black I put on my engine sucked. I put down the primer, and seriously like 5 coats, and it looks awful. I used the can with the engine on the front, rated to a couple thousand degrees. I will have to try this!
