Ah. That I'm not sure about. I could only guess..... but I'd sand them down baby smooth, then take them to a painter and have him shoot them. But....AlwaysWave said:I guess they're called the fuel rail covers? The plastic snap on gizmo's.
this is a great suggestion if it for metal parts, but if it for the plastic parts that you are speaking of it will not work. powder coat requires an electrical charge which you won't get with plastic. Sand them down smooth starting with about 1000 grit and moving on down to an almost thinner than paper sanding pad(you can find them at a hobby shop for like model cars and stuff I think that they are 5000 grit or something) after that clean them with a cfc contact cleaner to get off all the oill and sanding dust. Shoot them with a good qquality paint and a top cote of clear and they should be good for quite a while.:thumbsup:84 GRANDSPORT said:Have them powder coated or they will eventually bubble/crack from the heat!:surprised
I painted my plastic rail covers last spring and they look great! I picked up a matching Ruby Red right off the shelf. No signs of peeling or cracking.AlwaysWave said:I want to paint the covers on wifey's 95 a bright yellow to match the outside. I plan on sanding them down to a nice smooth finish first. There's lots of paints out there, but which brand and type can handle the heat on the plastic?
i used VHT brand,high heat (for motors)clear coat,it gave the plastic a nice depth and shine,i use zaino on them also,no scratchs,peeling,fading etc...looks just like the day i did it actually.that pictures does not do my motor justice,it was taken inside the power plant were i work,under ultra-violet lights.Mike said:Also, I advise against a clear coat. It doesn't need it and it probably wont take the heat and eventually peel or crack.
