Nicely Done, I did mine in Hemi orange and aluminum with black lettering...clear coated.... my only problem is my dealer's service people, aways seem to bang or chip the paint on my engine cover when I bring my truck in for routine service....hard to complain, as it's not a stock item.... I may have to remove the cover, before I take it in for service...kind of a pain though

Looks Awesome!! At what step did you apply the HVAC tape and how did you cut it to fit the letters so nice? I was thinking a exacto knife? Any tips would be great. Really wanted to start tomorrow. Thanks.

Thanks for the compliment. I put the tape on after I was finished painting. I polished the tape in 1pc first. Then cut out square section's to fit over the lettering. Used a draftsman's exacto knife(hobby knife)the one with the pointed blade to cut around the lettering. Just take your time, the tape cut's very easy. If you press to hard you might cut the paint on the edge of the lettering. It was a bit tedious. Took me about1 1/2 hours. Couple of things to note, make sure clean the cover really good. I washed it twice with dish soap then used a degreaser on it. Use an adhesion promoter. It's highly recommended for plastic.
This is what it look's like installed:http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=81093
