    Painted egine cover...

    Has anyone painted their engine cover on a Z20let?

    If So what paint did you use, i've done my using normal aerosol cans but im beginning to wonder if the temp is going to be to high and whether i should had used high temp paint?

    I done the cover on my old 1.6 and it was fine but i no how hot the Z20let's get compared to na's.

    Im gonna take a chance i think, if the paint is affected by the heat, its a high temp paint jobbie
