    Cleaning throttle body and inlet - outside!

    Nice easy one this evening! When people spray the inlet manifold and throttle body (mine are looking pretty tired), do you just use normal car primer/ paint / laquaer?

    Yeh I think I might clean it up but a respray would be better and easier to look after when it's all fresh.
