Classic Industries/OER GM Engine Enamel
Solid bodywork and a good paint job will grab attention at shows, cruise-ins, and in traffic, but when a gorgeous hood is lifted to reveal a faded, dusty engine bay, that great first impression will be overshadowed by disappointment. That’s why Classic Industries offers OER Classic Blend Engine Paints for your Chevrolet.
Unlike some paints that turn out nearly translucent, OER Classic Blend Engine Paints are specifically designed to maximize coverage and hiding while precisely maintaining the correct original colors and hues. These paints effectively adhere to air cleaners, engine blocks, heads, intake manifolds, valve covers, water pumps, oil pans, transmission cases, and more! Every Classic Blend formula is designed to withstand intermittent temperatures up to 400° F as well as rust, gas, oil, grease, salt, and humidity.
With professional results without the need for an air compressor or the hassle of mixing paint, OER Classic Blend Engine Paints are the last word in underhood restoration. These 16 oz. OER Classic Blend Engine Paints can be ordered online 24 hours a day at www.classicindustries.com or by calling 1-800-854-1280.
