Painting the coils top yellow has been around for some time now.  No one really advertised what paint they used.  I know of one judge who would let it slide if done well.  I saw one last week on a $100K Boss 302 that had sloppy paint lines.  It made me question the whole car.  We have a lot of "quick paint job" restorations here on the west coast as rust is less of an issue.

If you are going to do it, do it well. Otherwise, questionable work just leads to closer inspection of everything.

I think Dkutz means he can't find the yellow.    I can't either but looks to be available via online such as:

Yes, can't find the yellow.  I will try a couple other places tomorrow before I resort to ordering it.

I bought from Home Depot online. I picked up at store so no shipping. This was the least expensive and least hassle for me . Others experience may vary.

Home Depot online only sells by case,  and isn't sold in stores.  I've don't want to spend $30 for a case of paint I need paint to cover a two inch circle

If you spend hours driving all over kingdom come looking for it then you can be seen as being being penny wise and pound foolish. It depends on what you think your time is worth . For me it made more sense to suck it up and get the case then waste time and gas finding a smaller amount. But that is just me . Others my think differently.

Menards carries this item at some of their stores. Handy if you are in the North Central US.
Otherwise, this is how shipping works (for me):

Merchandise Subtotal: $3.68
Processing Fees:         $2.80
Shipping Charges:      $6.71
Pretax Subtotal:       $13.19
