    [3rd gen or general] Easy mode quick heatsheild painting. No tools needed

    So I left my toolbox at work which is closed for 2 weeks, time to easy mode it!

    you will need:
    Tin Foil
    Zip tie or string or rope(not nessecary)
    wax and grease remover (or any cleaning agent)
    heat resistant paint of your choice.

    Step 1: unplug O2 sensors, give head shield a clean with the wax n grease


    Step 2: tin foil everywhere that needs to be paint protected, tin foil is easily mouldable and doesnt move around. Plus I had no masking tape and that would have taken a lot longer. (the yellow string is holding wire out of the way, didn't have any zippies)


    Step 3: Paint, here's the first coat.


    And just a few coats later it's looking like this! (about 4 coats!)




    Now you can really feel the horse power just by looking at it!, and it only took 15 minutes. Tomorrow I do the same to the rocker cover.
