After owning and playing with many Z cars since the early eighty's, I never thought that I would be the one who would ask for input pertaining to engine color choices. But here goes. I'm in a rut and have been pondering over this for at least the past week. As my years passed, I've painted a number of engines, and have stuck with Datsun blue or matched the exterior color of the body that was to receive the engine. My new engine build is about ready for paint and installation into my silver, (#901) 73, 240. The car is very nice and straight with new brakes, bushings, struts, bearings, lowered, wheels, tires, all new interior and lots of goodies for the race shop built motor. Somehow, the Datsun blue color just isn't speaking to me and matching the silver body color would have virtually no contrast to the Aluminum engine parts. I have thought about painting it black, but I'm not convinced. And I say, "Who better to ask, other than my Z car "peps", when asking for aesthetic advice? This Z car won't be a grocery-getter nor a race car. But it should be a respectable, Japanese hot rod. Any input, any advice that will help me past my color choice dilemma, would be a "god send" and will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your respected thoughts and opinions.
