    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?

    Sorry, I meant because its very pitted and stained, I was wondering if people clean them up or just spray them?

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

    Yeah got loads, ill try and upload some later, you can see the wrinkle effect but it doesnt do it justice, much better in the flesh.
