Starting to look at the next small project - cleaning the rocker covers. My thought is to paint the rocker cover in red wrinkle paint. First I would polish the cover i.e. remove oxidation, then polish up the raised surfaces. I'll paint the cover red. My question is what is the best way to cover the raised parts to stop them being painted, obviously I can't mask them off?
I'm also thinking of painting the cam cover below in black wrinkle paint, depending on how difficult that part is to remove, bearing in mind I use my car Mon-Fri to get to work. The plenum chamber at the back, I'd prefer to leave in original alu, and I'm considering either Belgom Aluminium Polish or Alu Tech polish to clean that part.
I bought some nylon brush parts for use with a home drill from Toolstation, and am looking at starting next week hopefully.
Will keep you updated.
