hey all

with the engine stripped down, i intend on giving it a spray to keep it looking neat.

prep-wise i guess a degrease & light wire brush, then some high-temp engine paint will be enough?

cheers :)

That should be all you need, as engine enamel dosn't require any primer.
Just make sure you remove all loose old paint, dirt grease etc

give it a very good clean. make sure it is spotless. if not when the heat gets to it the paint just peels off.

hehe thats from personal experience when i sprayed the motor in my old mini

Before you spray it give it a going over with some brake clean and a lint free rag.
