hardest thing is the cambelt cover as theres a small bracket in front of it but the rest is simple, just remember to mark where your CAS is otherwise your timing will be all over the place when back together

i used clear lac for radiators, at least it can handle some heat(which i thought would be a good thing) and no discolour for about 6-7 yrs. still looking good now,as new

its not too hard a jobto remove the covers but as stated, mark off the position of the cam angle sensor. Whilst painting my covers i also did my turbo pipe a dark silver-chrome.

As prev stated normal body paint is fine - i used the latest water-based type (R34 red pearl) and gave it a good bake.

:thumbsup:
