As originally designed, the engine bay was never meant to be a visually appealing place. It was simply a spot to stuff the engine and hold all the various bits that makes a Camaro functional. But hot rodders want more; their goal is to have the engine bay be as tidy as the rest of the car. This is made a bit more challenging since engine bays are fairly hostile environments. High heat, battery acid, oil, coolant, and decades of road grime can all conspire to turn an engine’s showcase into a dilapidated mess.

But cleaning it up isn’t all that tough; it just takes a little bit of time and some sweat equity. It also takes fresh paint, but instead of being limited to yesterday’s rattle can technology, companies like Eastwood are helping the average DIY guy get pro results with spray cans that function more like full-on spray guns. To check out this new-breed of spray paint, we decided to clean up the engine bay of a 1967 Chevy Camaro RS that was getting prepped for a new small-block stroker.
