The red on this engine is the early rocket red, it is unlike the series 2 rocket red.
I have a genuine 6/1973 308 and it has the early rocket red. I also have a 8/1974 kingswood with a 202 and it is painted in the series 2 rocket red.
When the specific change over happened I don't know.
One thing is for sure if you use the wrong colour it does not look wright.

Ceramic clear

This is one of my trial manifolds.It has been sand blasted the chemically stained.
And coated in a ceramic clear.
I will test the finish when the engine is run in. The run in process will take place in a spare HX ute chassis we have.
I will post results as they come to hand.
