Ok so I just cleaned up a Rocker Cover from an old Metro. It had paint in the inside so should I also paint the inside?

Its a bit pointless really. And I'd be worried about paint flaking off and falling straight into your engine - most paints can't handle oil, solvents, high heat etc

I was just about to paint I inside as mine had paint inside too.its only really come off because of scraping off the aol coke/burnt on stuff out plus where there was no longer any paint it had rusted probably through standing for years or short journeys creating condensation.
All things considered I think I will paint mine as it was origionaly.
