I replaced my spark plugs today and got to thinking... The engine would be a lot cleaner looking if I color matched it to the car. Now for the question.. Is there a High temp resistant, plastic friendly spray paint that closely matches the Nautic Blue of my 99 S70?

Re: Painting the Spark plug cover? (ViriiGuy)

I don't think the plastic cover gets hot enough to need special paint, any good paint should work

Re: Painting the Spark plug cover? (ViriiGuy)

Advanced Auto, here in VA, has a fairly decent variety of hi-temp paints and I think there may be a navy blue shade. The hi-temp paints will have some flex agents in it that may make it more durable under the hood.

Krylon makes plastic paint for outdoor chairs. Home Depot sells it and there are a variety of colors.

I had thought about using Krylon Fusion, because I know it is a GOOD plastic paint, and they have a navy blue that is very similar. But I did not think it would hold up to the temps.

So you guys don't think the top plastics will get that hot huh?
I may just have to buy some on Monday then. Polish the down pipe, anodize the fuel rail and paint the plastic covers... That would give the engine a nice clean look.

I will go look at the krylon paints and see what they have. I figure I will paint the timing belt cover and the spark plug cover, to keep them looking the same.

You don't want to do the T-Belt cover, too rough a finish and it's the last thing you want to accentuate
