Yes sir. Plastidip and patience most definitely. The stars I drew onto cardboard as my stencil and then traced onto painters tape. Then placed and spaced the stars evenly with ruler.

Beautiful country out there as I have not been up north that way since my teens. I think your flag would look pretty badass on there. Especially everytime you open the hood to check fluids and all. Just that little extra something to give you a little pride in your ride.

Did mine myself. Nothing very fancy, but I like the look under the hood. Took much longer to mask off than actually paint. Just like someone said, make sure it is clean. I went over the raised letters with some 400 grit just to break the surface, then cleaned with degreaser.
Working on going with all red accent under there, started with the red BT catch can.

The engine cover looks great Gantman! Looking for an intake for my R/T and noticed you have the Injen. You have any more pics? You are the only person so far who I have seen with one. Do you like it? How does it sound?
