Engine Paint
« on: May 29, 2012, 08:10:49 AM »

I have searched the REMLR site but cannot find a paint colour or code for Painting my 1967 Series 2a workshop's engine

I remember something about duck egg blue from the old forum but now cannot confirm

Can someone please help?

                                  I use  VHT  Engine Enamel it comes in a pressure pack can
                                         the colour is called Pontiac Blue  Part Nosp122
                                   Its very close to duck egg blue and looks the duck's gut's
                 Available at most stores like super cheap, I get it from auto barn in Moss St. Slack's creek.

British Standard 101 Sky Blue is the colour I used on my engine. (I found that code on that other Land Rover Site). I had it mixed at the local Paint Supplier in a slow dry spraying enamel Don't use fast dry as it wont last.

I have seen army 2.25ltr motors painted just about every colour. The bright canary yellow one was pretty impressive  :D

Not too sure about yellow but it did make me smile

I bought the Pontiac Blue yesterday so will be working on that in the coming days

Thanks for the replies

As Tommy said, some are Yellow, some are Red, just depends on who reconditioned the engine, for the life of me I just cannot remember the name name of the company that did the engine in my bloodbox,whilst it was still in service, it was in Thomastown Vic, anyway that engine color was Red, my S2 C/R engine was Yellow, cheers Dennis
Ps I think the company name was RPM engines,,.

There is some of the duck egg blue left on the engine, so that being the reason Im going that way

I have not had a great exposure to many old landrovers but I will be sure to keep an eye on all these differences in the future

Thanks again

 Mine was a dark red when I got it,but was painted Holt's Engine Enamel red,a little too bright,and the original DEB is showing through on the timing cover,but the motor has done 174,000 miles so I will allow the paint to flake a little  :D
