    What paint?

    For my winter project, I'm going to paint some key parts under my hood. My question is this....what paint do I use for the following parts?

    Intake?
    Air Lid?
    Valve Covers?
    Coil Packs?
    Bumper Support?

    Will regular body paint work on the the parts that get hot (Intake, Valve Covers and Coil Packs)? or will I have to use engine paint?

    I used hi temp paint on all those pieces except the valve covers, which are powdercoated.

    id go to your local paint shop and ask em. . . i think you can probably use regular base/clear, but either have to have a high heat primer or additive. base/clear is pretty strong when applied right.
