Best protection for engine bay paint



Hey all,


I have just received my weekend car back from the body shop after having the engine bay smoothed and painted. I am looking at protecting this paint the best I can before I put the engine back  into the car. Ceramic coating is obviously on the list, but I am wondering if it would be better using the Wheel Coating instead of the normal paint coating due to the extra heat that it will see. Does anyone have any experience with this?

A ceramic coating would be my choice to protect a fresh, bare painted engine bay. 


Just be sure to follow your painter's guidelines for applying any products to the paint. There is period of time where the paint has to cure. 


You bring up an interesting point being the engine bay will see more heat. I would still use regular ceramic coating in there. I've seen plenty of people use normal ceramic coatings for their wheels before and it holds up just fine.
