Flaky paint on the manifold!
Went to see a car yesterday, a 2004 spider - a bit dissapointed to see so much of the red paint was flaking off the manifold, particularly around the logo. Is this common? Can it be touched-in or is it a much bigger re-spray job?
On that note - the red manifold is indeed the jewel in the crown under that glass engine cover, how does one keep the red colour fresh and vibrant, as they so often look dull and dowdy after some years?
