    ZLET Engine dress up bits

    Right - good weather is starting so its about time I sorted the engine bay.

    I have a chrome heat shield ordered, chrome boost pipe, blue samco's and a strut brace (which is yet to be fitted...).

    Ideally I would like a shiny oil cap, radiator cap, fuse box top and relay box top - done some searching and not found much TBH.

    Also hopefully going to be getting the rocker cover off (would I need a new gasket after?) to clean it up a bit (do vxl sell the 10 bolts used to hold it on?)

    Can anyone point me in the direction?!

    Apologies for the excessive use of ()'s!!

    see glenn yale for chrome covers etc.

    its always good to replace the rocker cover gasget when you have had it off.

    vxl will sell the bolts also but i would get some chrome ones from else where!

    Doesn't glen yale do the fuse and relay covers? Unsure on the caps.

    Sure Vauxhall will sell the bolts, they must sell every single part on the car.

    Excellent link.

    Anyone know what size and thread the rocker cover bolts are?

    LMF have the fuse and relay covers too, but was looking into the strut brace and it looks like I will need to 'adapt' the to make it fit.

    M6 x 30 (obviously 10 required)

    Not sure on what head size - you'd have to check this
