I meant the rattle can itself dies and won't spray.  I had to puncture mine and pour into a pump sprayer.

What did you paint those manifolds with? Also is the harmonic balancer supposed to be black?

Looks awesome.

You can buy a grey manifold spray. Supposed to be heatproof but unfortunately it does not last forever

On the heatproof.
If your engine would reach the kind of temps these cans usually claim they can handle. I bet the paint would be the last of your sorrows.
On my part, never had regular paint going loose on my blocks, if and only if the metal beneath was corrosion/grease/oil free.

Its Ford corporate blue. I only found it in a brush on tin but if you dilue by 10% it can be done using a sprayer. I know its available here in UK on Ebay and i am sure its available elsewhere in Europe
