Honda Dream Engine Cover paint

Post by Texas Biker » Fri Jan 20, 2017 3:02 pm

I have 3 Honda Dreams and I want to paint the engine covers with rattle can paint.

Can anyone tell me what Company (ex: Rustoleum) and what color (ex: Cloud Silver) is the best Classic Honda silver match?

Thank you!!

Krylon Dull Aluminum seems to be very popular and is reported to touch up well. Dupli-Color DE1650 Cast Coat Aluminum engine enamel is another. I used the latter. There are other choices, but you should search the forum for the names.

I use Dupli-Color DE1615 engine enamel with ceramic it's high temp, fuel resistant and the color is correct.

I like this paint also. The color is right, and it is quite oil and fuel resistant once you've baked it in the oven for a bit. Make sure your significant other isn't home when you bake it, though.

Duplicolor DE1615 or DE1650 are the two most popular and are argued like an oil thread in different forums, IMO the 1615 is too bright but some believe the 1650 is a little too dark. I use 1650 for all Honda engine painted parts that were silver. To me it doesn't look overly fake at all. Either is a good durable paint, go with which ever you like.

Whatever paint you choose, just don't forget to prep the surface really good.

Definitely go for something that is fuel and oil resistant - my nicely painted cases now have "scars" from fuel dripping on them.
Thanks.
