Could someone please give me an idiot proof guide of how to remove it so I can paint it? I know its a very easy job, but given my recent spate of luck with this car I'd like to be very sure of what I'm doing!
just remove everything which goes across it ie spark plug leads, throttle cable, plastic thing coming off throttle body etc. then remove the 4 bolts holding it on. like you said easy job just take it slow and be carefull not to damage anything. oh and if you paint strip your old cover make sure you use some etch primer on it first before you repaint it if using acrylic. if you use enamel you dont need any primer.
