Painting / detailing the Intake System...

Post by TonyB » Wed May 08, 2024 3:39 pm

Hey all,

I'm detailing my engive bay to bring it back to its best.

Has anyone painted / detailed their intake system without taking it out of the engine?

Be good to have receive any tips or suggestions.

Thanks,
Tony B

If you mean the pipes that go into the intake manifold, lettered Alpina, where the paint flakes off, I believe to do this properly you have to remove them and have them coated properly. Charles will be able to give better advice on how / who can do this.

Hi,

Yes, that's exactly it. I was hoping for a simpler way, without removing it, but guess it makes sense to remove it.

Any other suggestions are welcome.

Thanks
