    Thanks man! Used a steel wire brush (just a hand one I got from work) to clean it up - itís quite narrow with long bristles so good for getting in the tight bits. Quick wipe with acetone then sprayed a few coats of Simoniz VHT silver spray paint. Itís been in the shed for so long the label had gone all crinkly haha, but finally found a good use for it. Couple of small bits of overspray but nothing where you can see it and nothing that couldnít be cleaned up.

    Got mine from Amazon, but itís cheaper here now: Shopping

    Yeah itís made such a difference to the engine bay paired with the rocker cover! Only used like half a can maybe, it seems to spray really well and get great coverage.

    I used regular old silver Hammerite for my brakes. Saves masking stuff off, although if youíre getting a few cans of the VHT stuff then you might as well use that.

    Did you actually paint the throttle body and the aac thing as well or just brush them up?

    Yeah I did paint them. Wire brushed them first to get all the 15 years of crap off then gave them a few coats of that VHT paint. Painted the lot - inlet manifold, throttle body and the AAC valve as well as a few other little brackets, bolts etc that were attached to the whole assembly.

    I kind of cheated and didnít take everything off. I took some small bits off like the AAC valve and some small brackets but I didnít take the inlet manifold and throttle body off. I just moved all the wiring and hoses out the way, masked up everything I didnít want paint on them sprayed it in situ. Yeah, the underneath of some of the bits wonít have been painted but I got both sides fully, top obviously and the back (so everything you can see and a bit more).
