    first question is why do these things rust as soon as they see daylight? Could they not put a paint on that would prevent rust? My 49 year old Dodge Charger has an oil sump that looks still in good condition!

    2nd question is has anyone tried using heat paint on one to make it last longer? I have seen some sumps on ebay ranging from £29, £40, £50 to above £100 and £200! Most ads are library pictures so it's hard to gauge quality.

    Anyone got experience with these? I'm wanting to do an oil change soon and could do with changing the sump/gasket at the same time. I have some high temp paint as I'm going to do the one on the Dodge soon and thought I could paint the Fiat one. Interestingly Fiat are part of the Chrysler group meaning all Ducatos are Mopars! Which is nice!
