Re: GETTING READY TO PAINT MY ENGINE AND DRESS UP THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT
Darker hues are easier to keep clean in general. Out of all the vehicles I've owned, I've never once done up an engine for the purpose of showing it off. I checked the fluids on my Durango before I left work and a co worker was astonished at how big the engine is. That came from a woman who drives a 2.0L gas VW Beetle.
The Cessna I fly also uses a 360cubic inch engine, but with only 4 cylinders and is rather shiny!
