    Hey all,


    sorry if this is in the wrong area.


    But is there a guide on here on how to paint a rocker cover?


    I plan on painting my D series cover sometime soon but don't have a clue how to do it.


    I did search the forum first but couldn't come across anything as the search limited me to two words.


    Thanks.

    Check this out bud.... its a fairly simple process but the trick is taking the time to prep it well

    In fairness it works if you log in again, think it's due to the cookies treating it as a new site rather than the one with www at the start.


    Also didn't realise there was a how-to for it on here, might give it a bash myself at some point...

    I only want mine done in cosmic grey, shouldn't be too hard to do it myself I don't think :Tongue:


    Although I've been speaking to Gary about him doing me one for ages lol, will get it done if my OEM one starts to flake.

    I just fancy giving it a go myself lol


    Since it's just an SOHC top it seems pretty simple to do.


    Haven't settled on a colour yet though, and it's going to look completely out of place in my engine bay lol
