    After Jeggs shipped mine, and saw the mess they were in, they changed their listing to USA shipping only about 5 minutes later! Get a US member here to order it for you and then reship discreetly in the mail...

          I did my most recent engine in Turquoise spray cans from Mopar Performance. Not bad, not great, very expensive. Wouldn't use them again.
          I still haven't found a good source for quality RACEhemi orange. The Mopar stuff is abysmal !

            My problem is I have the block already painted from fews years ago with the MP paint. I am changing the look and want to paint the intake the same color as the block but can't seem to find the MP around here . So it's a colur match problem is the main issue here

            The VHT does look like it could be a good match . At least from the picture at least

            Don't worry about a paint match, just shoot the whole thing!

                call your Dodge dealer. Motor paint P4120752AC is still available in Canada, may take a few weeks to get it out of the USA. A buddy just finished painting a 1969 440 he rebuilt, the color looks great. mopar paint.jpg

                  I just checked his website, " Bill Hirsch Engine paint" you can find it via
                  Google. He does have it in aerosols and quarts, Turquoise, Chrysler red, Street Hemi Orange. This paint is totally correct in all the reads I have seen. I believe he ships worldwide. 22.00 per aerosol can. I did not check the price on the quarts. Also Frank Badalson, did sell it also, but I don't know anymore. Hope this helps you!

                    my buddy just sent me this about getting VHT in Canada. He received this when he was checking on motor paint before he started his rebuild. This is from a VHT dealer in Canada

                    Unfortunately, it is a good VHT number SP126 but not something that can not be imported to Canada. It could be the hazardous labelling does not meet Canadian standards or certain paints use aerosols that are restricted in Canada. I cannot quickly verify which is the reason but either way I can not order it for you. VHT / Duplicolor only makes a select few part numbers for the Canadian market. You could try to buy it from a US source but I'm not sure if it would get turned around at the border. You could also try a Autobody Supply locally. They might be able to mix the colour and put it in an aerosol for you.

                    This is the only engine paint I use. Easy to apply and very durable.

                      Worth every penny, inexpensive, brush on, follow instructions.

                        I second the VHT SP126. Good quality and good color match for a reasonable price.

                        Would you consider a road trip to Buffalo or Detroit? VHT is carried at most Autozone's in the US. Just call ahead to see if the color is there.

                        Of course border crossing is your call.

                          Is the Pope a Catholic? :D

                          Amazon ships anywhere worldwide. It all depends upon hazardous goods acts in differing countries, and importation rules.

                          We get VHT here. :)
