I was looking at my bike and thought" the Royal Enfeild needs to be painted red" well then browsing this forum I see I wasn't the only one. Here I was thinking I was all original and such 😉
Well I went to the hobby store and got me some red model paint by Testor , got me a brush and went to town on it. Here is my attempt.

I'm not sure if the "model" paint will take the heat. If not, you can use brake caliper paint! I did! Really like the red. I also did my RE Fly Screen lettering.

I'm considering painting the valve cover red with the textured high temp paint at my next valve adjustment.

Thats the nice thing about forums, it allows you to mark a time when you did something and if it goes south, you can always post up when it quit. I presume you can get brake caliper paint at an auto parts store.

Yup or Amazon...even Walmart had it!
I used a spray can on the small lettering crankshaft cover on the left. Sprayed and then wiped it with some paint thinner. Didn't work so well on the clutch cover side so I sprayed it into a cup and used a tiny brush.
Almost 2500 miles and still impressed. Running stronger every mile.
