Wow your engine cover looks AWSOME! How did you go about it? Is the black part painted or is it just masked off? What type of paint did you use?

Thank you. I sanded it first the primed it. I painted the sides blue first using engine enamel. Then sprayed the middle with black engine enamel. Then I taped off everything for the little details. I did about 3 coats of paint to be safe.

Your welcome. I ordered some Austin Tan pearl and was thinking of painting the whole thing minus the raised part. Did you use an adhesion promoter 1st?
