I'm planning in painting my hood. I primered it and it's all ready to go /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I want to do it flat black and I removed the under-hood insulation already. I was thinking some kind of high heat paint ie engine or even BBQ lol

What are your experiences?

Thanks

Really you are limited to the paint that works with the primer you used. Mixing brands or types of paint is very risky as its a 50/50 chance that the top coat will not like the primer and wrinkle or peal over time or instantly.

Look up SEM Hot Rod Black. Has very little shine and can be purchased in flat I believe!

Thanks for the replies /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I'm more worried about the high heat from the engine distorting the paint.

Should I be worried about using regular flat black paint?

Yeah...Don't worry about the heat from the engine. You only need to worry about high temp paint when your painting exhaust parts.
