    Default Bling bling! Polished Z20NET spark plug cover

    Picked up a spare spark plug cover and cam cover, I was going to have them chromed initially but thought I'd give polishing them a go to see how they looked first as if nothing else I've helped the would be "Chromer" as they need to be mirror polished before plating anyway.

    It's not 100%, couple of minor inperfections when you're up close, namely some pitting near the "ridges" if I decide to keep it like this I'll rub them down with some wet and dry and re polish
    Still pretty pleased with it though!

    Yes mate that's the cam cover, it's not difficult to remove, a series of bolts and an oil feed at the back iirc, going to start rubbing down the spare I have tommorow

    Randomly, the car park where I've parked my work van today had 240v outdoor sockets on the wall, so I decised to make good use of them on my break and start on the cam cover, got the large areas flattened down but think I'm going to have to invest in some small flap wheels for my dremel for the nooks and crannys, will update pics later
