Inlet Manifold Painting



  172 Cup SOLD
Seen a few 172/82 inlet manifolds painted, what sort of paint is this, or is it a body shop job?

Cheers

just use hammerite with a really small brush if your useless with a brush tape the thing up first to avoid overspill

dunno, not done it, but some very fine wet + dry sandpaper would suffice i'd imagine!

gt_gaz's does sound a lot better method!, and probably a lot neater as well

having a polished face on the lettering and painted sides would be a good effect as well i would imagine
