Default Painting suspension?

Hey guys i need your opinions. Im looking at painting the steering knuckles, rear crossmember, wheel wells and the whole engine bay. I was thinking of using eastwood chassis black on wheel wells crossmember and knuckles. Just in air cans. I do have a cheap gravity fed mastecraft gun i could use with a 1.4 or 1.7 tip. Also curious on what primer and paint i can use in my engine bay. Something in a soray can that is durable and heat rated that sprays nice with a nice finish cause i shaved my enginebay and doing wire tuck. I need to know what worked best for you and is durable.

I painted valve covers before with normal spary paint and they never had a problem with the heat.
Also people have done blocks.
So I don't believe the paint type will matter as far as heat goes.

Just clean them really good

The paint won't matter as much as the prep. Clean the parts really well and also use primer. If you can powedercoat on the smaller parts then I would go that route for durability.

Any experience with eastwood chassis black and the primer that goes with it?

I've got the whole suspension off my coupe in a tote ready to go to the powder coater. I'll let you know what the final quote is, but his ROM quote, including blasting, was low enough that it's not worth me getting all the necessary equipment and putting the work into doing it myself.

The shop that I'm going to does a lot of work for the city, I'm able to get it a little lower since I just want plain ol' satin black and he can throw it in with a batch of stair rails or whatever. Might be a route worth checking out for you as well.

Noone in this town does powder coating. So i called the closest place that does (300 miles away) and they said around 35 dollars a spindle and about 120 for the rear crossmember. I think im just onna spend a bunch of time prepping/cleaning and then spray eastwood RE then spray on the eastwood primer followed by 2k chassis black. Any other opinions of painting suspension? And i also plan on stripping the undercoating in my wheel wells to the factory primer then lay on a few coats of fresh new dupli color. Reason is the wheel wells are so dirty and the factory coating is so sloppy it will look like shit if i just clean it up and lay on the new. This is gonna be my well kept daily drive ( every 2 weeks or so throw it up on jacks and give everything a good cleaning

I've read pretty glowing reviews about the chassis black from Eastwood. I think that it should be good for what you are doing.

Two more quick questions my two front upper control arm holes through y shocktower have onehole on each side is ovaled out but the two near the firewall are round. Its the exact same on each side. Also i sorayed my engine bay with dupli color sandable black primer and learned the hard way that wax and degreser removes it like its dust. Curious on what people have used in a spray can thy went on smooth and glossy tht has held up to pressure washing and brake fluid and degreasers. Its a shaved and tucked bay so it has to look pretty decent. Sorry for all the questions i was gonna be doing this the proper way with a gun and automotive paint supplies but i am now moving to alberta very soon and need to get it done asap so its gotta be spray cans and hold up/look good for a year or so. Btw its an ef (for the question bout the oval holes in the fuca)
Thank you for taking your time to read this any answers are highly appreciated thank you

If you want something that durable, strip the engine bay and take it to a shop to have it painted. Nothing in a can is going to give you that level of durability.

VHT rollbar and chassis epoxy paint is very durable stuff. Probably the best Ive used from an aerosol as far as durability and good looking gloss black
