Wright radial engine colors

Recommended Posts

Had a random video pop up on YouTube that was produced by Curtiss-Wright Corp. in 1943.  It showed radial engine production in great detail from start to finish.  One thing I noticed was that on every radial engine they showed, the cylinders and heads were painted glossy black (vs. natural metal or painted silver).  Only applies to Wright engines, but I thought it was interesting.
