    Tons of 45 heads were painted black for the military but all are #5, I've never seen a factory #6 head painted, only raw.

    But there's booze in the blender

    That frozen concoction that helps me hang on

    I think that is what I need for my FXR, but will it hold up under UV rays? or will it turn gray?

    It’s a urethane so uses a catalyst and reducer. Has UV inhibitors.

    Manufacturers claim
    satin finish, 2K, single stage topcoat system that provides outstanding color retention, excellent sprayability and superior mar resistance.

    Good luck getting it off your motor mounts. I had to use oven cleaner on mine. EAST OFF and a razor blade.
