I'm going to re-paint my engine cover, cowlings and lower unit.

The question is: Will automotive / Rustoleum paint be OK to use?

I know there is specific marine paint for engines but I can't see what the difference is?

My engines are old and I just want to give them a make over. I'm not looking for a factory finish, just to make them look better...

Any advice gratefullt received.

Spring a few bucks extra and either get the factory paint or a good automotive paint. Aerosol cans will give you an orange peel for sure. The key is priming and faring...fill those nicks in and reprime and sand with 180/220/320. The better you prep, the better the topcoat will look. spray pint will give you a much better finish.

Give me a call/pm/email and I'll give you more pointers.
