Default Block/Engine Painting

So who'* got the best brand of paint to use for making our engines bright and shinny?
Any tips or tricks to be aware of before painting blocks/heads?

Painting the Block is a pain in the a$$ unless its out and stripped down. If you really want to do it, just buy some engine block paint from and autoparts store.
