View Full Version : Painting the coil

17-03-2005, 01:23 PM
My dumb question for today..

My coil is really letting my engine bay down, the paint is scratched and flaky in places.. looks really manky but it works!

Would it be ok to remove it, mask off the electrical end and spray it black? It shouldnt effect the performance should it?

My coil was looking manky, and all I did was mask the plastic/electrical bit up and spray it black. I very much doubt there would be a loss in performance, all you are doing is repainting the untidy paint thats there.

Thanks Ian, I thought it would be ok but then again I thought I better asked just in case!

No probs George,
I think its safer to look a muppet for asking what maybe a "stupid" question, rather than muck it up after the case.
