Hello to everyone, I am re-building a hardtail with a kitted 80 engine, I have a question ~maybe two~ abt painting the engine....
Anyone know anything about wrinkle finish painting as in :cost, and product to use?....
and if anything wha is a decent paint to use on the engine that can hold up to the temps and so on?.......
Yea I know paint isnt a viable thing but since its already painted I just want to finish it and give it my own touches. thank you all for any info I can get.

I think TeeCat has that wrinkle paint on his engine sidecovers. you might ask him.

I have done a few parts in wrinkle finish (years ago) Spray bomb works fine follow directions which (used to anyway) involve an oven to "wrinkle" the finish. Painted a Norton primary cover in wrinkle with the big raised circle over the clutch left polished aluminum it really looked sharp.
