engine plastics paint, what temperature ?
What temperature will the engine plastics get at the most?
I saw some engine paint that will stand to about 1200 degrees fahrenheit, but the colors are to plain.

I saw a very nice metallic purple spray can, but it can only resist to about 315 degrees fahrenheit.
Will that work or will the heat get to it?

btw, I tried searching, but couldn't really find an answer to this..

You need at least 500 degrees, But i would recommend 1200, because i used 500 and mine is wearin away.

Thanks for checking that for me.

The colors are pretty plain like in the shops here
I think I am going to let them chromed, depending on the price.

As long as you use a high temp clear coat, you can use whatever color you want...right?

hmm, sounds reasonable, but I had chromed/chrome plated covers for 50cc motorbike when I was 16. They were all chromy and shiny, so I assume something can be done to make them look chrome

Im pretty sure thats all that you have to do. Just do a couple coats of clear coat and you should be good to go. But wait for someone to prove me wrong before you go trying it...

that's a good question, I was wondering the same thing. also, what about primer.. if it isn't high temp are you still ok if you cover it with something that is high temp?

I might try a few layers of high heat resistant primer.
Than a few layers standard paint.
Cover that up with a few layers of high heat resistant clear coat

You do not have to use any high-temp pain for that plastic cover. Mine was done professionally by a shop. They used regular paint for plastics only. It still looks awesome 7 moths later wink

the plasticks dont heat up to 500 degrees. you'll be fine with the 500 degree paint if you have enough coats of paint and clear coat.
