Refinishing engine - Plenum and Cam covers

Recommended Posts

It seems to be a crinkle finish in what I can only describe as a 'light red'. Has anyone any suggestion for sourcing the paint, please?

Looks to be a spray finish. I have spray gear if it doesn't come in spray cans.

Thanks.

Jeff

Moss - the people who do MG and Triumph spares - do spray cans of crackle finish paints - mine was in black and they had it - don't know about red, check their website. Sperex VHT also do crackle finish aerosols.

I had the plenum and valve covers powder coated in red, and it looks stunning, not to mention more durable then the paint. I did a smooth finish, but you can get a crinkle finish with powder coating as well.

http://www.caswellplating.com they offer the wrinkle finish Red Powder. You can do it yourself if you have a spare oven, if not you can see who in your area does it. I powder coat a ton of parts
