You really need to use specific high temp paint otherwise it will start to bubble and crack eventually. Halfords or other car parts places have specific paints for this purpose. There is one which is designed to stay directly on to engines too which is similar. I used it on my old engine block on a micra and it made it look like new. Rear drums Don't get quite as hot so hammerite might be OK but I personally wouldn't trust it. Caliper paint for me all the way. I've got blue on my front calipers and am waiting for a nice enough day to do the rear drums black.

Yeah I notices the tang and I did twist it and as you say it seems very fragile. So long nose pliers as far down as possible and turn. Does it's matter which way it turns? I don't fancy breaking mine lol. The bulb are the capless 501s or capped? Have you got your ones in led? Thanks for your reply mate :)

You only have your twist or slightly. If you use pliers and twist and pull towards you gently it will come out. I've got Cree ones in mine. Tight squeeze but are super bright

Basically there are lolly pop type sticks attached to the bulb one for each side. If you turn them slightly and pull towards you it should come away with the bulb attached and also the wire with it. The trick is to not turn them too much or with too much force. I use a pair of long nose pliers to reach as far down as possible so as there is less stress on the plastic. I made the mistake of twisting too much and misshaped the plastic. Also at the bottom of the lolly pop is a slot which you could try slotting a large flat head screwdriver in and try turning. Either way it only takes a little turn normally to release them. Hope that makes sense and good luck
