Villiers 25c and similar engines
With what is the best way, please, to blacken the barrel fins and what paint is best? I notice that a lot of the exhausts are painted in the same green as the mower. Do I take it they do not get hot enough to burn the paint off?
Paint: engine enamel.
Exhaust gets plenty hot. Most used mowers will have rust in place of the original paint.
I use BBQ or wood burning stove paint but it struggles with the direct blast of a two-stroke. Sperex car exhaust paint is good but difficult to find round here.
Googling Sperex brings up several other brands of VHT paint .
Thanks - most helpful. On first top coat and last red oxide before looking at the engine - so slowly, slowly catchee-monkey!
