Your under bonnet is painted no? Inside the engine compartment is also painted.

Any paint shop can do it nicely :)

One respray workshop recommended by my insurer told me cam cover need to take out so he can sand down the top layer then apply base coat follow by few layers of main color, no need lacquer.

I don't know how skillful he is to dismantle cam cover as I heard before once u remove cam cover, gasket has 2b replaced.

:shifty:

Try a painter with a workshop beside that can remove the cam cover.

Or find a workshop that have a paint shop near by.

I am sure your regular servicing workshop can recommend a competent painter. He will then take out the cam cover and send it to the paint shop for you.
