    Details

    Underhood Black™ is the perfect lacquer paint for the correct OEM-matching finish under the hood...choose semi-gloss or matte Underhood Black™ Semi-Gloss is just the right 10-20 percent semi-gloss finish for most radiator supports, inner fender walls, underhood brackets, and other underhood parts.

    • This underhood paint has exceptional adhesion for an engine-compartment paint
    • Just degrease parts first for a factory-like finish
    • 11-oz. aerosol can covers 6 square feet; 1-quart can covers 48 square feet
    Customer Review: "I'm building a 1969 Yenko Camaro. I have the subframe and arms powder coated. I used Underhood Black on the engine bay and the underfloor. You cannot tell the difference between the powder coating and the Eastwood paint...amazing results! Looks factory-new now."

    About Eastwood Underhood Black Paint

    Underhood Black is the correct shade of black underhood spray paint for engine-compartment paint on radiator supports, inner fender walls, lug wrenches, jack bases, underhood brackets and other parts. Black underhood paints from typical hardware stores are either too thick, too glossy, or the wrong color.

    Just clean, degrease, and prepare the parts well (use our Self-Etching Primers), then apply this engine-compartment paint for a professional, factory-like, underhood paint finish. Acrylic lacquer withstands up to 250 degreesF and goes on thin for a smooth finish that doesn’t hide surface details. Do not use with enamel primers.

    Due to regulations pertaining to paint recycling, at this time we are unable to ship this product to Alberta, Canada.

    FAQs

    Q. How do I apply this underhood paint?
    A. Surface must be clean, dry, and free of dirt, grease and oil. For maximum protection, first prime with a self-etching primer or epoxy primer before top-coating. For best results, use when can is between 70 and 90 degrees F. This engine-compartment paint may be used over bare metal, self-etching primer, or Rust Encapsulator.

    I'm using this paint for some aluminum engine panels for my kit car. The shade and gloss are right on, but the problem I've found is that the paint chips easily. It doesn't take much for it to flake off.
    This is the finish you're looking for... (Posted on 9/15/2011)

    I sprayed my engine compartment/inner fenders/radiator support with this paint and the finish is virtually identical to the factory color and sheen. I am not aware of any other aerosol paint on the market that will get this close to OEM.

    My favorite thing about this paint is its resistance to oily fingerprints. You can clean oils off of this paint without them staining (unlike all other low gloss paints I've tried). I didn't have any problems with the cans or nozzles (I've used 6 cans now), nor did I have any issues with variations in the sheen. The paint dries wildly fast and lays down smooth because it's on the thinner side (I suspect it's this way to obtain the unique finish). Use a black primer to reduce the number of coats you'll need to cover.

    For reference, I needed 1.5 cans to paint the radiator support on my Chevy K10.

    I'm working on a 1986 Buick Grand National. I sand blasted, primed (with black primer), and then painted some of the underhood brackets and fuel rail with the aerosol version of this paint. I found that the spray had a hard time picking up the paint solids from the can and depositing them smoothly and evenly on the parts, and this was after shaking vigorously for several minutes. Even after three fairly heavy coats, there is still variation in the sheen of the paint as you look across the surfaces of a part. The sheen ranges from nearly flat to nearly semi-gloss on the same part. I also noticed that dry, black overspray particles got everywhere, and I mean everywhere. Clean-up in the basement took forever. Overall, the sheen of this paint is a little flatter than the factory black paint that was used on this vehicle. Quite frankly, the rustoleum primer I used looked smoother and more consistent than this paint did. If I ever do this again, I will order the quart and try running it through my sprayer or air brush, or I will try a different paint. The aerosol cans were just not that good.

    I got 7 cans total. Covers very good, spray tip is very forgiving less runs. Color is great for under hood or under cars.

    I have no complaints about the paint itself. But you would think for the price you would get a decent spray can to dispence it with. Better start excersizing your finger now. It is HARD to use. Even with a trigger attachment you get worn out. After half a can you cant keep the spray going due to fatique. Average paint in a super cheap can only gets 3 stars.

    Waste of money! Twelve dollars and change for a 12oz can of paint. Not to mention 9.95 for shipping?
    22.00 for 12 oz. of paint that sprayed on so dry that I had to get two inches from the part just to get the material to flow. And a week later I can scrape it off with my finger nail. Now I have to strip the part and do the job over when the part was already sand blasted to bare metal. Overpriced Eastwood crap. Never again.From now on I use automotive quality paint only.
    Very nice finish (Posted on 3/13/2011)

    As with all Eastwood aerosol paint, it sprayed wonderfully. I only would like to add: do not use this on clean, bare metal without self-etching primer! It will scratch off without it. With the primer, it has proven quite durable and stands up to a lot of heat.

    I have used at least six cans. They blend well and match the original color. They dry quickly and I have used them on other projects other than cars where I want a durable low gloss color.
