I thought I would fit my rocker cover which i bought off e-bay not long ago.
It's changed the appearance of the engine bay totally.
I was gonna respray the old one in phantom or mandarin, but ended up getting this instead.

yeah if your too retarded to clean it before applying. when applied properly shouldn't be a trouble, it's still on my mate VJ 265 Hemi months later and after driving from Hobart to Queensland and back. i painted my rocker cover red almost 2 years ago, still on there.

I;m not a fan of the VHT high temp paint.
my brother is a spray painter, so i'd 2pac primer it, rub it back and paint it. Thats if i didn't buy this one.
VHT is only good for calipers, others may not think so.
I'm happy with it.

i used septone engine enamel in gloss black. You have to clean the area very well, and do a few coats and allow to dry very well.
