    Yes. I actually know Tom. Great guy. Has helped me lots in the past.

    Funny thing, I am actually a automotive painter by trade. I am going to get our supplier to colour match a 2k areosole of urethane paint. That's what I will use for the intake and valley pan. It's a one use thing which is the only crappy part.

    Still going to try and track down a can of the original MP stuff though. I like to have for quick touch up!

    Bill Hirsch is spot on for color and quality ... Not cheap but worth it.. That’s all I will use now.

      I am not sure that they will ship paint aerosol cans across the border.

        Yeah that border thing is messed up, the north is like Fort Knox the south is like a brothel with swinging doors. Good Luck

          Like I said, when Jegg's saw the hoops they had to jump through to honor my order then immediately changed their listing to USA shipping only !! That said I also ordered T5 spray cans from the USA on Amazon.ca and they had no issues shipping right to the door. Their stuff seems to ignore all regulations, both for what it is and all the expense and brokerage is non existent..right to the door at what you bought it for.

          Two people have suggested the requested paint is quite possibly available right from a Chrysler dealer here in Ontario... all it takes is a call to the parts department to confirm.

              Wish they would sell more stuff like that/restoration materials on the big A. So so easy. No BS.

                I have a friend that I think bought the last 3 cans in western Canada. He told me it was discontinued. I haven’t checked with our local dealers. I will need to do my engine. How close is Eastwood’s? I don’t know.

                If Bill Hirsch ships to Canada, here’s a recent picture of my water pump/housing. Aerosol.

                  Bill Hirsch stuff is awesome. I've been to his place here in New Jersey. If you can get it... Get it.

                    I have posted this before but the turquoise paint from Mancini is actually blue and doesn’t even come close to matching.

                    I've heard that the turquoise was discontinued until January 2022. So check with ma Mopar soon. Old part number p1287 52 a b

                    100% Bill Hirsh. Brushed the engine & sprayed the valve covers & oil pan.

                    I bought a quart of the paint for the engine, as I was only top coating the area's I could get to with the engine in place. As far as the valve covers & oil pan, I'd say buy 3. I primered both and did 2 coats. You'd probably only need 2 but better to have a 3rd just in case.

                      Usually - in my experience - most of the turquoise paints shift color a little after a few months of running and heating. So results right out of the can may appear a little brighter than what they will eventually look like.

                        Not a very good picture but the only one I have on this PC.

                        Best I remember this is Plasticote. Was done maybe 5 years ago .
                        Going off pictures I located at the time it was dead on or at the very least close enough the owner was EXTREMLY happy with it

                        The pictures dont do it justice. In person it does have a VERY slight green tint to it. and it did darken after a summer of driving

                        The current Mancini turquoise is more like blue.
