Re: Check-List for Service...
A basic service is pretty simple but just about everything gets looked at, check condition of all items that wear (belts, brake pads, wiper inserts, boots, bushes, plugs, leads, filters, tyres, ball joints, uni's etc), check all fluid levels and condition, tyre pressures, oil and filter and check/adjust ya handbrake.
Alot of checks get done even on a minor service if you go to a dealership or a decent workshop but it doesnt get mentioned on the Repair Order or your receipt, the only time something is mentioned though is when something isnt right etc.
Painting the rocker cover is pretty simple and looks good, totally degrease it and give it a rough sand, I used a wire brush attachment on a drill very quickly. I hit mine with about 6 coats of that VHT high temp stuff and then ran a few coats of VHT clear over it and it hasnt chipped, cracked or flaked. Been on it for about 9/10 months now. Just make sure when you put it back on you seal it up properly otherwise it wont stay clean long.
