My new Cinq thread

Right thought I would put all my progress reports and piccy's all in the same post

Basically take one car that looks like this:





CSC manifold trial fitting...





Not enough clearance on the sump spacer needed




Next stage cleaning and spraying engine..





For now the whole thing in black

Toying with the idea of painting red...

- Coil Pack plate
- Alternator pulley
- Water pipe
- Maybe sump

Just sprayed Rocker cover to see what it would look like btw will be a chrome one with chromed Map sensor plate and ECU cover with all red hoses....

Next step go get a Spacer machined up and order all my gaskets

Re: My new Cinq thread

Hi
I`ve seen that car in the flesh it`s well sweet,but how tacky has chubbs made it look covering it in stickers and fitting the smaller wheels?
Please get the hair dryer out and remove all the stickers(he`s even put them on the headlights )
Nice purchase Jamie i know you`ll make it go as good as it looks,(unless another italian car you haven`t already got comes up for sale near you )
Good luck
Cheers
Adrian

Re: My new Cinq thread

the headlight ones are in gay font so they dont count

can i not interest you in a big red one

back to your original question though , paint everything in your list red apart from the big round things (excellent technical knowledge) , wont they run the risk of making the belt slip if they shiney and coated
