    i was thinking anthracite sorry if thats spelt wrong
    a company up my bosses yard there mainly wheel refurbishers they did my rstt's for me.
    the main man said around £20 for the inlet mani so i thought id do the rocker cover and maybe anything else that looks bit tacky.

    company name is bjv engineering they are based in flaunden hemel hempstead mate

    that looks pretty smart would it stand up to the heat of an engine bay?

    was thinking matt black tom but i think it will look to much like the engine cover
    i couldnt get the rocker cover off in the end so will leave that for now.
    im just havin the inlet and strut brace done.
    ive been looking at old pics of my old black rst which had anthracite 17s, i used to love that colour so im swaying that way at the mo
