Don't buy Duplicolor, terrible paint. I wanted something I could get local. I bought the VHT high temp black metallic for the accessories. I am going with this Gold. I did my 73 Oldsmobile valve covers. It goes on really nice and doesn't react like Duplicolor which is very thin and lifts any paint under it.
VHT would be a good option if they offer gold paint. Every Olds Motor that I built and painted gold had burnt paint on the heads around the spark plugs. The last 403 that I did got black POR engine paint…. Problem solved.
It isn't close but most gold paint aren't. It is a very bright, almost semi gloss metallic, I like it. He is using an EGR manifold so he probably isn't dead set on matching the Olds factory Gold. This is what it looks like in person, shows better than my pic.
