How can you get it that clean?? Is it purely down to elbow grease or is it a steam clean job to kick it off?

Never used it mate, some people jet wash, but that's not for me, if you can, remove what you can degrease n clean it off the car the replace for best results, Maguires degreaser and engine lacquer is good stuff, both bottles should be bout £16 all in.

Looks good. Do you have any details for the battery cover i.e. seller, size, price etc ? Saw one on ebay for about £50 but it didn't look as good as yours.

Ahh, custom made. Not sure what to go for then. I only have 2 blue items in the engine bay, everything else is Red/Black/Silver so I would like to hide/replace them.

Daz - it's The Terminator - Colin is the new owner

Colin - you could get one of these and then get it dipped to match the black carbon inlet manifold or the top radiator brackets in candy lava red carbon

Ahhhh, my apoligies, what a tit, didn't realise, mine was scrap bit of steel plate, cut out corners for terminals, bend edges over in vice, rub down sharp edges n HYDROTEK did the rest, if you gonna dip it, you cud cut a piece of plastic to shape, the dipping process hides everything, as for BOV, remove, mask chrome areas and small red/black tin ov spray shud do the trick.

NOTE- It's hard to improve on perfection affraid

I was going to delete the BOV completely as Dr K said I didn't need it and get a black battery.

My battery cover is almost identical. Originally high chrome steel from Badass on eBay which I eventually had shot blasted then dipped by Locky with my skull pattern, so they are available if you look for them.

That looks like a good option. I considered a black battery but you mentioned it was pretty new so that would be a waste.
I emailed Turbo Dynamics (the Turbosmart disti) about a black top cap for the BOV, no reply yet.

If you can get the size of the cover you want, I'll see if there is some thin steel laid around at work and get the edges folded over. Wouldn't mind 1 myself now lol.

Originally liked it chrome then got it dipped by Locky @ Hydrotek

Obvioulsy not the most economical route, but that how I got to where I am.
