    I have a ming blue car and I ended up painting mine matte black just because I wanted to keep an OE look to the engine bay with my black silicone hoses too. I have since see a nice red rocker cover and wish I'd done mine in that colour now.

    Sorry, old thread i know... What did you go for in the end, colour-wise?
    I want to do mine, just wondering what the best method is? Is a high-temp spray paint up to the job or not? Found some matt orange i'd like to do it with...
