Not a really a 'mod'....wasn't sure where to post this.
I want to repaint my engine cover. I'm not sure whether to get it anodised or powdercoated, any ideas on the suitability of the two, prices etc..?

Hi there,

I have used normal car paint as the covers don`t get too hot and I done the same on my last car and it was fine.

Hope this helps

Glen...I cant make it out from your avatar if you have it fitted or not, but usually singles have this metal "barrier" between the turbo and the engine.
If you don't have one it might be an idea:)

F#$K me that is huge!! You cant even fit a bloody piece of paper between the engine and the turbo...let alone a piece of metal!!:rolleyes:

Glen...forget what I said;) :D Here is an idea though...have a ceramic tiled engine cover built...that should keep heat tranfer to a minimum!

I reckon that caliper paint would be fine for the engine cover; after all they get bloody hot and the paint doesn't fall off.

I will be painting various bits on my 'baby' GTS and will report hoe it goes.
