This is what all the Honda guys use for either a red or black rocker cover.

I have the red stuff sitting here, waiting to be used in fact.

You don't have to cure it in the oven if once it's installed, you get your engine very hot for a period of time.

Depends what's easier - Mum telling you off or spending a bit of petrol for the generated heat.

I'm going to bang mine on and get the engine bay roasting away.

you dont need to do that

just buy another rocker cover ( if thats what your spraying) clean it up, key is the follow the instructions on how to spray it as it needs to be done in a certain pattern!

then leave it to dry for a day or more :D

to give you an idea

Not entirely sure buddy!

Can't see it getting any more crackled than it would be if you left it out in the sun or indoors ! might just crackle quicker?

Honestly have no idea though.!

Yes! Of course you need to make sure you can spray properly with a spray can. VHT crackle luckily doesn't need the smoothest of preps either.

Just like anything though, the more effort you put in, the better the outcome.

The crackle paint i used PJ1 Paints, its needs to be sprayed on the items that are warm, Luckly i had acess to a spray booth...

Prep - i flatted the items down with 320 dry then de greased them with paint wipes, the masked up and painted...

Applyed 1 heavy coat first of all, then after a few mins apart from each other apply 3 light coats and then bake and let dry over night.

Few pics on my Project DTR thread...

Cheers

Tiller
