I’ve been doing this for a while now, it started off with a friend, then for a friend and now it’s something I do in spare time.
All covers are OEM, sent away to a local business for chemical strip so there’s a nice clean, grease and debris free surface to work on, then they’re refinished in a wrinkle paint and heat treated to cure. Chemical strip gives a more reliable finish than sandblasting, which can pit the surface as well as hide behind the baffle plates on the inside of the cover, causing problems within the oil system later down the line.
- Hard wearing
- Simple, effective
- Classy OEM finish (Ferrari, Honda)
Any imperfections in the cover are minimised… It’s quick to dry so quicker to post out/ fit and doesn’t require primer or lacquer, keeping time and cost down.
Standard wrinkle is available in black, red, blue, and grey. It is possible to paint over wrinkle, but takes time to lightly build up the colour with an even coverage, not filling the wrinkle effect.
- Is it long term heat resistant?
- how to get the wrinkle tight and even?
Firstly, it is temperature resistant to 350°F (177°C) and resists color fading, grease, degreasers and severe weather conditions. The rocker doesn’t get to that temperature. It is a tough, durable finish, extremely resistant to rust, corrosion, chipping and cracking. And the right textured result is down to prep, application, heat and technique.
