The IS-F engine retains heat for a long time, IMO. Here in the desert, to save the battery, I raise the hood after a drive; the top radiator hose stays blistering hot for many, many hours.

Try Dupli-Color's NS 00596 Brushed Pewter. It's a "perfect match" of Nissan's CS3. Only available in the Scratch Fix 2in1; no spray can unfortunately.
