Well, I purchased a new set of Fuel Rail covers. Now I need to find a source for high heat paint. I need finish quailty paint as I will be clear coating the final product. I would like to find a source for small amounts if posible (4 to 8oz) I will be needing a quart of black, and 4 - 8 oz bottles of Red, White, and Yellow with candies of each. Also I will need a quart of clear and maybe a dark peuter.

Are there any bodyshop guys out there with any sugestions? It gets pretty hot under the hood.

He has a guy for everything :) DY is conected.

I will do the graphic work on mine then have a shop clear coat them. I don't have a air brush large enough. There is a body shop around here that I trust to do a good job on the finish work. I just need to get paint and to re-learn how to use my brush.

True but DY's guy paints for a living. I wouldn't expect him to supply me with paint. I need a source.

Well Jay (green LT1 camaro) is a bodyshop guy, but the guy that cut my fenders and painted my fuel rail covers is Pete at St Charles Collision. He can help you out with paint too. He is acctually my age and his dad owns the shop. You should see his camaro's and his dad's 64/65 GTO's.

You'd think for how connected I am I'd know more chicks.

Yea it seems the further we get from high school the fewer girls we know.
Grab one now before you are old like me. There seem to be more 20 somethings than 30 somethings out there. (not that I don't want a 20 something, they just don't want me :) )

How do I get in touch with Pete?

Damm That hurts. For what I'm looking to do and the colors I will need I'm looking at 300$ in paint before I have the finish work done.. That may kill this project..
