    Default Bling Oil Caps?

    Is there such a thing or do I have to look into buying a new one and spraying it before it gets covered in oil?

    These ones are for the Vectra B, but some of them could possibly fit :

    Oil cap only :

    Or you can also ask for Duncan to dip your parts in carbon look ABS :

    Looks like he's not currently selling on eBay, but he still answers to emails and takes orders.

    I might buy a brand new one, they're only about £5 and then spray it a different colour.

    You got any pics Lee? I was thinking getting a new one to make sure it wasn't oil contaminated before painting.

    As long as you clean/degrease them it will be fine, quick wipe with a sanding cloth and ready to paint...

    1st time I just diluted blue hammerite with thinners so it would work in the spray gun, second time I just got some 2k mixed up, but rattle cans will be fine if no access to guns...

    That looks great and it's just the colour I want, what paint did you use? I think that'll just about match my calipers.

    Can't remember the colour as I got it matched up to the silicone from a chart at the paint shop... Hammerite is a bit lighter but looks good without the silicone if wanting it to match calipers, I had mine that way for couple of year.

I know nothing about painting things, any chance you could send me a link to something from Halfrauds that would do the job?

    You can get hammerite in a rattle can form so no need to primer... If your getting auto rattle cans you will need a plastic primer and a clear coat to make the finish last...

    Least you have loads of colours to choose from with rattlers at halfords, sometimes there's a 3 for 2 offer on also
