Tim,

Advance Auto Parts and Car Quest carry it. It is Dupli-Color DE 1604 Universal Gold. I had to get some, I have to put a water pump on my Cutlass.

Thanks,

I will second on the DE1604 universal gold. It looks great. I would recommend that you use a light primer or hit your parts with silver first, or you will need a lot of light coats to get it to cover well.

Tim:
I used the VHT SP404 gold paint on my engine - see pic. I think it's a little brighter than the OEM color but looks good. I recommend applying several light coats as it runs easily and you'll be tempted to lay it on thick trying to cover the rough surface of the block. On my aluminum heads I scuffed the smooth surfaces with 320 grit paper to give the paint something to bite on to. I wiped everything down with lacquer thinner before spraying the paint. I hope this helps!
