    Hi there Stevie - thought this might help you a bit - Drinky painted the plastic covers with Plasticote Super Gloss Spray Paint Enamel plus matching primer. He has been using this for years now - it doesnt crack, peel or flake and is very heat resistant as well.

    The blue hose covers in the photo above are a kit from Argos - they wre only £19.99 - one kit did the whole engine.

    To shine up the hoses and black plastic parts he uses Autoglym Tyre Dressing sprayed on neat and left to soak in then just wipe up any excess with a cloth.....hth

    Good luck!! Remember to post up some photos when you're done!
