Default Painted Engine Cover, Airbox & Fuse Panel!

Wanted to share the pics of my painted engine cover, airbox and fuse panel.

The airbox and fuse box were alot of fun to do. I had my wife cut a 2 vinyl stickers on her vinyl cutter for the HEMI 5.7 lettering that you see. I layed a black base coat first and then applied the sticker and then taped off what I wanted to keep black. I then layed my 3 coats of gloss red. When dried, I pealed off the vinyl sticker to reveal the HEMI 5.7 in the painted piece. I think it came out pretty good. The engine cover it self was pretty easy, but time consuming due to the chrome tape overlay on the existing letters. I have to thank dgard61 for that awesome idea!! Thanks bro, came out great! Same steps. First I layed down the black base, taped off and then sprayed the red. After everything was painted, I put on 3 coats of clear that came out great. I have real nice shine.

Very nice! I like the "monster mash" font on the lettering. What kind of paint did you use?

Thanks. I am pleased. I used Krylon fusion paint, specifically for plastics. I also used an adhesion promoter prior to painting just to make sure the paint really took.

Please keep in touch as to how it wears. I am curious as well how it handles the under hood heat.

Nice job. I would like to do something like this to mine.
