    Gave the engine bay a freshen up today. The alloy was looking tied so gave it a coat of graphite grey which looks factory fresh . image-256028564.jpg image-1242112982.jpg
    Going to clean the rockers when I do the plugs .

    Nice job, what did you use for the AMG writing? Was it painted by yourself?

    Sorry I forgot about this thread
    I did the supercharger in heat proof graphite grey
    And the AMG inscription is satin black acrylic
    put on with a small square sponge , you need
    a steady hand and take your time as imperfections will stand out ;)

    I'm sure I've asked you this on your e55, what products did you use to clean up the engine bay first?

    Hi jimi , try G101 apc , with a brush to agitate
    the nucks and crannies , and rinse with a hose or
    damp. microfibres , j always spray my engines with wd40 or similar to remove any moisture and
    add some protection :)
