Engine Color

Do any of you guys know the stock engine color on the 3.0L? Especially an older one like my 94. I am rebuilding it and want to paint it the stock color. Now that I have cleaned it down to the stock paint it is a kind of puke green/grey. I am going to take it all the way down to metal removing old paint and rust.

Just go with black. Gloss is okay, its better to go with a dark color. Dark colors help pull heat out better than lighter...
