FOR SALE Textured Finish AKA Wrinkle Rocker Covers


#1

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.

Why Wrinkle?

  • 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.

Colours
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.

FAQ

  1. Is it long term heat resistant?
  2. 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.

Pricing
From £50 (supplying your own)
Bare metal / painted letters +£10

Additional colours outside of the stock range, are totally do-able, PM me!

Postage +£15 or collect from Chesterfield S44

I’m happy to help source covers with a deposit/ payment, or can suggests various breakers if needed. Pricing reflects not only the chemical strip, other prep tools and Products used, but also the time invested in the garage doing it. Please don’t hesitate on negotiations with services and parts :wink:

Any questions below!

Thanks for reading :slight_smile:
