Engine Grey, Series Land Rovers is a traditional single part Synthetic Coach Enamel paint, used by Land Rover to paint the 2 litre diesel engines until 1960. It was also used on some other Rover and Land Rover engines around this time. It is a perfect Coach Enamel for the discerning restoration specialist or enthusiast. This Engine Grey shade was matched against an untouched original 2 litre Diesel engine and associated parts, and corroborated by a Series 2 Club member for accuracy at the time of the final colour decision. This was also confirmed by a professional restorer who rebuilds nothing but leaf sprung Land Rovers and has done since the early 1970’s.

- Spray application. All of our Coach Enamels will need to be diluted by around 5-10% using Paintman Coach Enamel Thinners, thus ensuring the highest quality finish and maintaining correct drying times.
- Surface Preparation. Prior to painting ensure all surfaces are clean and dry to remove any contaminants. We recommend using our Surface cleaner 2800 for painted surfaces or our Surface Cleaner 2802 for bare metal. Just prior to painting, wipe the surface with a Tack Rag to remove dust and other loose contaminants.
