    Default F430 Engine Covers need painting

    The covers at the top of my F430 Spider engine are painted red but the paint is blistering and flaking and in need of being re-done. Can anyone help with an idea of what kind of a job this is in terms of complexity and time and secondly recommend somewhere to get it done if possible in the York/Leeds area.
    I am assuming that the paint needs to be special due to the heat and position of these parts.



    Here's a picture of the bits I mean - not sure what to call them......Name:  2022-01-20 11.46.54.jpg

    plenum chambers.

    Mine were powder coated, not painted. Outsourced by main dealer to these guys.

    Just be careful as not everybody can do wrinkle coatings.

    Default F430 Plenum Chambers

    Thanks. I come down to Bromsgrove each June for MOT and Service, so probably a good time to do them. Thank you. Can I be cheeky and ask how much it cost - approx.

    Think from memory it was circa 300; sorry don't have the receipts anymore. Certainly happy with the results.

    (If that's Migliore, I'm sure they will know where to send them )

    These are the cam covers - right? I need the plenum thingies done - did you have them done too?

    Correct.

    I just had the cam covers done. Plenums etc was going to be this winters "job" until I sold it.
