What process did you take to paint it? Primer and then paint? Did you scuff the cover first? Any information would be helpful. Thanks.
I'm curious about the painting process as well. But I have had my cover off and it is extremely easy. You have to remove the snorkel fromt he airbox to your throttle body. Then just pull up on the front and out. There is 1 grommet on each side of the engine and 2 in the back that the cover just sorta "snaps" into.
