Iím getting a new inlet manifold for my Windsor soon and I wanted to paint it before the install. As some of you know I have already had the rocker covers and the plenum painted with a deep red (one deeper than the colour of the car) and Iím rather happy with it but for the new manifold I wanted something a little different. I was thinking something along the lines of a gloss silver (silver with clear) or a matt black to match my alternator with is painted similarly. Perhaps even a gloss black.
I was also leaning towards redoing the rocker covers in the same paint as the exterior so that it matches but Iím not sure if that will be pointless given the unfinished engine bay paint job that these cars left the factory with.
Anyway Iíve got some pics here of my car during various stages of my ownership. You can get a reasonable idea of the burgundy exterior and of what the current paintjob looks like. Although the manifold will look different to my current one I would just like an idea of what it would look like with a black of silver manifold with the current rocker cover colour or with the ford burgundy rocker covers and a black or silver manifold. If you have any other ideas please feel free to include them also.
Thanks for your help with this.
