Hey guys,

I had all the work done after my head gasket went.....Strange for a BF but anyway....

When it was being pulled to pieces I sent the parts that could be powder coated off to a mate who owns Adelaide Powder Coaters.

The sides of the head were painted whilst it was removed from the car to be shaved. I had the inlet manifold removed. Top half could be powdercoated. Bottom half had to be painted as it would not be able to take the heat. Same with the throttle body.

The remaining parts were painted in the car with the aid of a lot of masking tape and newspaper.

I am happy with the results, and turned a negative head gasket problem into a positive outcome.....
