Best gloss clear for Engine parts

GLHGLH Posts: 53Member
I have a few engine parts I am doing and I remember reading somewhere what clear coats hold best for heat but the search function doesn't turn it up again. What is best for valve covers, air cleaner, alternator, and a thermostat housing? Thanks guy!

    Any of the sponsors clears should be fine... none of those parts should get all that hot!

    I don't see what any wouldn't do just fine. I quote that 400 degrees is the limit on the coatings. I've used PPG Deltron and UTECH 4.0 for a few under the hood items with no complaints from customers. I have no actual temperature data on anything though. But we also don't do much automotive work at all.
