Wolfgang Black Diamond Tire Gel from the USA

Use it on tyres, rubber seals, engine bay plastics (doing tomorrow night) and even interior plastic.
Withstands the heat from engine and 1,000 kilometres of driving to hamilton, horsham and back home.

I have painted the top part of the airbox and a few other plastic bits in the engine bay.
A few coats of plastic primer then Duco touch up paint in a can from autobarn.
It's only acrylic but is galaxy without metal flake
Topped it with six coats of acrylic clear coat (also autobarn)

Also done switches and cigarette lighter on the oval shaped centre piece of the dash
