Good stuff. Im using it as the base color for finishing the interior of my GlaStar. It goes on smooth, glosses nicely, dries quickly.

Good Lycoming color, the nozzle has a wide fan pattern making paint go into crevices a challenge.

Not the color I expected, as the other reviews have stated.

The other reviews are correct. This is silver, not Gold. I repainted some valve covers that were previously continental gold, and this is NOT that. Otherwise paint applied well. Time will tell on durability.

It’s not very Continental Gold, actually a gray color.

Received it on Friday and used it yesterday. As others have stated it’s not even close to Continental Gold. It’s actually silver or dark gray. Their chemist needs to revise their formula.

Good coverage and adhesion but not gold in any shape or form. Very disappointed.

Q: Do you need to use primer before using the aerosol version of this product or can you apply this to bare metal?

This can be applied to bare metal, but primmer is recommended.

Q: People here seem to be confused on the color of continental gold. There have been two Continental golds over the years. The Old Continental Gold is an actual gold color (very ugly in my opinion and will make your new engine look very dated. New Continental Gold is more of a silver/slightly bronzy and is the color that TCM is sending all their new engines out with. What is being sold here is the New Continental Gold. I hope this clears up the confusion.

Thank you for providing this feedback. We will post it for other customers.

Q: can this paint be used to paint engine baffling on a cessna 150?

Yes it can be used on engines and engine parts.
