Carburetor color

Unread post by Jerry Whitt » Sat Sep 30, 2017 9:55 pm

Seems like there is a special color paint or dye use to color the tops of Corvair carburetors. Where can I obtain this?

Eastwood has always been a great source for specialty paints. Good luck.

I have used the eastwood "gold" paint on my carbs. They don't look too bad. I like it. It does not look anodized but I think they look better than raw aluminum. Make sure you prep them properly.
