Yo dudes, here's one for ya.... Still looking for ways to mod up me beemer, I've decided the next phase is to go under the hood for a spot of painting! I have an artist lined up (the missus!!!) and was wondering if the paints I intend to use are safe, ie: won't cause a fire!! The area I am going to paint is the cylinder head and for the main part I have a specialist safe paint. For the intricate parts I have "Humbrol" enamel paints. Are these safe to use? There must be some of you that have done this before, what did you use? I don't wanna send my beemer up in flames after all I've spent on her!!!!!!! Talking of which......as we speak 2 sets of "M" Tech seat pins are on their way and coming up soon will be the chrome "M" Tech handbrake lever, leather handbrake gator and "M" Tech chrome illuminated gear knob.... SORTED!!!! Back to the original question tho, I would appreciate your advice dudes.

Robo!

well i cannot speak specifically about those brands, but many manufacturers do make paint specially designated as "high temperature" paint, used for engines and other hot components.

for the paint that you have, be sure that it does say somewhere on the label "high temperature" or "engine paint," otherwise the manufacturer can't guarantee that it won't peel or combust.

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.
