Thanks Doc, it was degreased, power washed and rubbed down lightly, etch primed then a couple of coats of Carplan Firecote VHT Silver, I bought plastic caps for over all the bolt heads to mask them!

I was a bit dubious when it was first done, seemed not cured, then I was unsure if it was the etch primer, but the more I run it the better it seems to get, it'll probably cure when I get out a good run on it! Have you used it on an engine before?
