I've just bought a spare engine cover which i'm wanting to colour code P Blue

Do i use standard primer and paint from a rattle can or do i need high temp paint? I don't think the cover gets too hot as it's plastic but i'm worried about it blistering with the heat

Cheers

I tried exactly the same thing but it looked
. You will need some high temp paint, I was advised to use something like etech brake caliper paint but the blue is far too light to match, I'm very fussy so I scrapped the idea and went for a shiny bits n black look, even swapped the cais to get matching black pipes!

Maybe use the etech stuff then do P.Blue spraycan over the top? Whatever you do make sure you lacquer it up afterwards.

Wonder how much a BS would charge to do it in 2pack?

Yep AS is as expensive as Team Torquesteer does seem stupidly steep as the part is only £30 ish. I rang three bodyshops and all three said that the job was "too small". Seemed rather difficult to be honest. I think if you know someone it would be a different story.
