Thanks CD!

anytime :smileup: Prep is the important thing. Clean it REALLY well with a degreaser and go from there. You thinking about doing it yourself?

Bodydoc2002 01-09-2011 12:41 PM

Yeah i'm thinking i'll do it myself. Does it need to be a high temp paint?

No it doesn't, the engine cover sees very little heat build up. You can even use the platic fusion paints to good effect unless you want to do a specific color match with auto paint, then you'd just have to use an adhesion promoter.

I really like the covers I've seen people do here. Looking forward to seeing your results. Of course a project report and in progress pics are always welcome around here, as well as pics of the finished product. :D
