Over the weekend I decided to paint my engine cover to match my car...I took the paint code and went to a store here in town and told them what I was doing and they mixed me up some paint and put it in a spray can for me. Here are some pics:

Primed (2 coats):


Painted (3 coats):

Did you use high temperature paint? Or just automotive paint?

I also sanded down the engine cover before I primed it....I used 600 grit if anyone is wondering
That was going ti be the next question.
thought I typed it. Guess I was just thinking it to myself.

Thanks! I didn't want to rush it when I did it so I made sure that I had a day that it was nice and I had lots of time to let the paint dry and everything!

what did you do for the ivtec label?
did you remove it carefully? or did you wreck it removing it and make sure you had a replacement?
what type of primer did you use?
