OS used to offer some of their airplane engines painted in blue. Can we paint our glo engines? They would look really neat in colour.
Anyone painted theirs?

The lot I got is not a lot, but I thank God a lot for the lot I got!

Wouldn't paint hurt with heat dissipation? Colored engines are anodized.

E820, Raptor G4N, X50F/E, E620, Forza 450, and some planks.

Actually, OS has offered engines that were painted or powder coated. You can't anodize cast aluminum. Well, you can anodize cast aluminum but it looks bad.

Will epoxy coatings such as Klass Kote manage the higher temps?

You should be able to use any high temp engine paint.
I think that I'll go for Hemi orange!

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!
