If you had a big enough oven i don't see why not. Don't know if there would be any issues with the car being at 180degrees though

Judging by some of the reviews it actually looks pretty good. Just gotta bodge an oven together!

Edit: on that page someone's done an XE Cambelt Cover

looked at these before, ended up not buying one as powdercoating everything I needed by taking it to the place was still a lot cheaper than buying that

Plus the stuff ideally needs shot blasting first if its dirty or rusty

I'd be interested in seeing some end results from users on the message board.
