Not sure if this has been answered before, didn't find it in the search. Apologies if it has.
What is the best color match for the Fuji blue engines? Do I need to use high temp paint? I happened to score a ported PRO 785 crankcase and want to match it to the rest of my blue parts.

I think Ford tractor blue is pretty close.

Ford engine blue is the closest color match we've found.

Ford engine blue....I think I saw some of that in a high temp engine enamel in a spray can.
Any special prep needed? Special primers? I have not had great success with spray can paint jobs sticking in the past.

Why make it Boring Fuji Blue,when you can have Bling Blue.

For that ultimate SLEEPER effect...
If I dont go with aftermarket heads, I will even keep the 650 rail on top!

Duplicolor Old Ford Blue DE1621
The link in my sig goes to the thread for my 650 engine rebuild and in the first post is a link on where to buy it cheap.

Right on, I found some Duplicolor engine paint earlier today. I will have to go back and see if they have 'Old Ford Blue'

as Hayabusa said though, it's not going to be like showroom new finish...the parts have to be very well cleaned and roughed up and even then it will likely flake off again later.
in my case I left the old paint on and did some light sanding and mucho degreasing...for the most part it is working but I don't expect it to last. I don't really care so much about what it looks like but since I had the engine apart and the paint was cheap, what the heck.
