Has anyone painted their engine cover? I am wanting to paint mine the same color as my car and the center part black. Also thinking of doing fuse box cover and other covers under the hood.

Yeah that is what I am afraid of want my shit to look right the first time not like ass. I have lots of ideas of mods i want to do but $$$ is what holds it all up. So trying to formulate plans on getting things done.

It's better to pay the money to someone who knows what they are doing than to try to save it by doing it yourself and messing it up. Wait till you get the dough. Very Happy

Time and paitence bro! A lot of our cars werent modded over night. Me personally have been doing whatever I can for 3 yrs. Save all your extra dough for mods if you can. I used to like going out Thursday- Saturday to the bars and night clubs. Well come Sunday I would be about $200-$300 lighter in the wallet. Not anymore I can get a case of beer for $30 and stay home and drink.

Had Jackies done for 200 but that was black and gomango it looks pretty good for a maaco job. Get done right it is the first thing people see and if it sucks then they won't really want to look at the rest

Got an email from Accidental Auto Body that they could paint it for between $120- $140. They want to look at it to nail down the price.

I did mine myself and it's not to hard, though the finish isn't as glossy as I would like. You have to use a special primer for plastics.

The Lady In Red logo is a decal done by The Sticker Dude in Lake Zurich.

Looks great bro, I would have had the strut covers painted at the same time, unless you have different plans for those.

I will see if i will do them when i get my strut bar i'm looking at getting the one from high horse performance. Now I have a place to get them painted so that should be a lot cheaper than the engine cover. Also might get my steering wheel inserts painted as well.
