Rocker box paint

Postby williampbox » Sun Mar 08, 2015 12:03 pm

Hi
I want to paint my rocker box cover green. Although I can buy an aerosol on line it can't be posted so must be sent by courier which means +VAT it comes to about £30! Can I use normal aerosol paint from say 'Halfords' or does the engine get too hot? Advice appreciated. Many thanks
William

That's why the paint is heat dispersant :lol: or it would flake off

I painted (sprayed mine) using a Holts professional mix from Halfords. The colour is BS381C Mid Bronze Green. This information was recognised by Halfords. It turned out a 'good drop of stuff'
