Maybe a little late, but here is an option if the paint only comes in cans, not aerosol

Another option, if you're not dead set on the ivory engine color being the close match that the Hirsch item is.....is the Rustoleum Almond Gloss that's available in spray cans at the hardware stores.

It's not as close to factory as the Hirsch ivory, but it's not that bad....and anyone but a points judge probably wouldn't notice.

You have to let Rustoleum really, really dry before putting it to use, but once it sets up, it's pretty indestructible and can take engine heat easily.

I finished painting the upper section of my V8-y-block original engine.

1. I used the Dupli-Color Chrysler Red (Chrysler Industrial Red) DE1632 spray Engine Enamel Ceramic. This is supposedly a direct desscendant of the original red used on the valve covers and air filter. See prior posts for authentication.

2. The basic engine paint I obtained from C&G Early Ford Parts. It is listed in their catalog in both spray and quarts. I used the quart can and painted with a brush. Came out great. C&G Tech Department 760 871 0445. The cream colored paint is supposedly exactly as the original. It is an AE Acrylic Enamel 8-1 2.8 VOC.
AE-TCP1954E A(B) Code:25291711. I have no idea on what all those numbers mean but it may mean something to a knowledgeable reader so put it in. Talk to C&G with any questions. This paint is also supposedly a direct descendant of the original. Paint went on smoothly - no brush marks.

3. I used Rust Oleum BBQ Black High Heat on the exhaust manifold (1300 degree paint)

After a long wait I finally received some very good quality valve cover decals, but I was expecting air cleaner too and didn't get them What is/was your source for the oil bath decal?
