    Ford Grey is what I used. Makes it easier to spot oil leaks in my opinion. A dark engine bay generally makes it harder to see what's going on, as light is not reflected about as much.

The kit comes with everything you need to insure a long lasting finish. I purchased mine from a local automotive paint supply store, but check out the link.

        Email me at [email protected] if you would like a pic of my S14

        Yep. The body shop who has done 2 cars for me and recently restored my father's camaro insisted on POR-15 Chevy orange for the motor. It does take time to cure though....expect an average setup time but it can stay wet for a week. Good Luck

          The Por is good stuff.. But fight the urge to apply thick coats. Thin coats will help drying time between applications. Also air movement seems to help setup time with a fan on low.

            Great! Thanks for all who replied. I will let everyone know what color I choose.

              Old thread, but can anyone tell me the purpose and/or part number of the screw plug down near the dipstick holder?
