so did you have to cook that wrinkle finish paint?
I recently saw a rocker cover done in a similar fashion, and might do the same if I dont stay with trad look.
 
I'm sure my boss wont like a Pinto cam cover in next to the sunday roast though.

I left it out in the sun for a few hours . I'm sure it will gas off when he starts his car for the first time, he will just need to keep the garage open!

Intake runners don't get very hot tho by the time it's on the car the paint will be well set

Get a cheap oven off the side of the road for car parts  just don't burn the house down!

Remember that time I ovened the Focus headlights to split them apart, the misso still brings that up at parties and BBQs, house reeked of cooking plastic for days , way worse than 3d printing fumes haha

an oven in the shed might be the go, good idea'.
Plus you could always bang some sausage rolls in at the same time.
 
I fired up my cheap diesel heater on the weekend for the first time and cooked the freshly painted struts in the jet stream it put out. Mind you the exhaust pipe was even hotter.
 
Usually I just warm up any spray cans in some hot water for 5 minutes. The paint always cures more like a powder coated job, and the increased pressure and thinner paint ensures the nozzle doesnt club or splatter either.

I had an epiphany the other day and heat cured the exhaust manifold in the bbq oven. Perfect
