Camshaft cover paint


Recommended Posts

Looks like my camshaft cover has been kicked around the floor a few times presumably during some head gasket replacement in the past.

A lot of the paint is missing and it looks bad when the bonnets lifted. Can anyone reccommend a paint that can be used to spruce it up a bit?

But is it wise to paint it? I have this sort of dilemma...to paint or not to paint...because I think that it will get scratched in no time... I had started painting all alloy parts except the head and turbo compressor housing (they get hot I think), but now I'm rethinking... is it better to leave it bare alloy?

To be honest its easier to just paint it rather than cleaning it to a shiny finish...


Edit: dont know what a freelander cover looks like, if its alloy or plastic, if its painted or bare etc...
