POR15 Engine Painting

The engine has been painted with POR-15 gloss black. This stuff is really shiny and flows out oh so slowly.
The most time-consuming part was masking all the heads of the allen head bolts. That took forever and then was painful to remove as the POR really grabbed the tape.
I had to touch it up with an artists brush after removing the masking tape. but it’s finally done.
The POR-15 flows out very slowly. I can’t believe this is a brushed-on finish.
Now this is a rough casting, so I was not expecting a show quality finish, and it isn’t, but overall I a pleased with the outcome. The paint flowed out evenly and the brush marks disappeared.
It appears to be a thick, tough finish.
