Thanks guys
I intend to tap the bolt holes out so there clear off paint I asked the paint shop where I got the paint from and he said it wount effect it

The lacquer is a special lacquer ( can't remember what he called it ) but he said he uses it all the time and there's no problems with peeling or colour distartion and it's good enough for a gearbox and transfer

Rich, that looks brilliant m8y, what paints have you used ? As you know my engine is near completion, well may have been a runner today except vauxhall world parts sent me the wrong timing belt.

The gear was next to be done but probably after the summer season now.
