Trying to sexify the engine bay, started with a lick of paint.

Now, after polishing the engine, i realised it doesnt look as great as imagined so i stopped at 800, and hoped someone over the internet could guide me to what colour it should be painted..

Any ideas?

Gunmetal always looks classy, as does Pewter.

One other thing (unless you've done it already in which case I apologise) is take the cam cover (the bit that you polished) off the car and paint it. You will get a much better finish. :thumb:

i did indeed, it made the job so much easier. Its good to see the engine bay free of all that yellowy stuff? What is that stuff?

I think it is some kind of resin/lacquer that MB use when the car is new to coat the cover.
