I have a crinkle-painted 20VT camcover for sale - recently painted and in very good condition, however.....

The person that painted the camcover had it sandblasted / bead-blasted before painting it AND they didn't have it cleaned before it was fitted to the engine. As a result, it seriously damaged the engine when the blasting medium got circulated with the oil.

it is for sale at £30, collection only (or arrange your own courier)

Let's be clear - I'm selling this as a garage wall ornament , If nobody wants it, I'll be chucking it in the skip (although I'll probably keep the coilpack cover for myself....)

I'm not saying it's no good to fit, just that it would need to be exceptionally-well cleaned out inside before you should attempt it

I certainly don't have the confidence in my home-cleaning capabilities - it would need to be professionally cleaned before I would entertain fitting it to my own car.

So, in answer to your question, it can probably be cleaned, but not by me.....
