Cam Cover Clean Up

1984 Volvo 244 GLE - 2.3L four cylinder engine

It is a relatively small change but it is amazing how refreshing up the cam cover can lift the appearance of the whole engine. I gave the rather grimy looking cover on my Volvo 240 a quick make over. At first I thought a clean would suffice but while the caked on grease and dirt (eventually) came off the metal underneath was rather stained. A lick of paint from one of the left over spray paint cans I had lying around followed. I then used a little acetone to wipe the paint off the raised Volvo letters to give it a two tone colour appearance. The paint work is deliberately not perfect so it doesn’t look out of place with the rest of the engine compartment.
