There are several destroyed engines from sanded covers just on this forum!
Yes - I think we all know what can happen. Too many painful stories from previous owners.
That's why this thread was "who do you recommend" so I can get it done properly.

Spooner look awesome - there is a forum member - rd55 aka Ross, who does a great job with refurbing rocker covers and can* do it on an exchange basis.

Thanks. I think that's the shortcut I have in my first post. I was hoping someone would recommend him...

UPDATE: Spooner Restorations don't have any Pre-Facelift rocker covers. I have asked him to shout if he gets one...
But in the meantime - does anyone know anyone else?

There's a bargain on the bay.... I paid less than that for a Spoon one!

Hi, Ross did my cover in wrinkle red about 2 months ago, I can vouch for him and recommend him. He's prompt and has kept me up to date with progress every step of the way.

I have refurbished several covers myself and always use paint stripper and then just wire brush!

This is vht wrinkle blue i did few months ago... it cost me 25 dollars for can of VHT blue and one afternoon!
Nice. I agree get yourself some sand paper, brush, nitromos, degreaser/cleaner and vht red wrinkle spray. Total cost about £15-20. Do it yourself and put in your home oven.

Novice question but if you don't put it in the oven won't the heat from driving it cure the paint?
