Comments about Duplicolor Engine Enamel, Gloss Black, 12 oz. Aerosol:

Sprays on easily, adheres well to a cleaned surface and onto bare metal, and maintains its shine and color for years. I am a little surprised though. This manufacturer used to have "Universal Black." Now they have a gloss and semi-gloss.

              Comments about Duplicolor Engine Enamel, Gloss Black, 12 oz. Aerosol:

              Works good just use several coats to ensure complete coverage and use a solovent on the tip or they can clog. And finally decent coverage but wipe or dry spills as the fuel does have a tendency to eat it away especially race fuel and high alcohol based fluid. Other than that as with any paint prep is everything and if the surface is sufficently prepped then this product will deliver decent performance for what it is a engine enamel. HIgh heat on headers boiled it off but it seemed fine on motors and 6inches down the headed just burned where she glows.

                  From past experiences, this paint only lasts about 2 years. After that the paint cracks and starts to peel off blocks and heads on daily drivers.
