I agree with the above, I have also sprayed Metalflake "back in the day" and the base coat colour and gun needle / tip size are key to it all. If the gun set up is too small the nozzle (paint tip) will clog all the time, also the base colour should be pretty close to the flake colour. In my inexperi...
Poor old engines, that was torture, all in the name of oil eh. However, on fuel economy, here's a thought- a friend of mine runs a hotrod with a BBC in it but he's just converted it to TBI with a kit from the US and is hoping to save a load on fuel, he says you can go in and play around with it and ...
