I then painted it with Chevrolet Orange 500C spary paint I got at autozone that was on sale for $5 a can (saved $1.50 woo hoo lol). I then put a couple coats of clear on it and I am going to let it sit while I am gone so I don't ruin it.
When I come back from vacation I plan on going to a powder coater to get a quote on getting my Intake Manifold, Plenum Cover and my billet pedals powder coated. Hopefully it comes out to a fair price so I can then be done with that.
There are also a couple of other projects/mods I still have yet to do. I plan on sending out my headrests to get embroidered, I am going to try to change the filter on the Rx breather to a black one, I plan on buying a plenum spacer and I may relocate my IAT as well as replace some of the stock bolts with black ones for contrast.
Quick update: I decided the Chevrolet Orange paint was too bright for me so I hit the cover with 1 coat of IOM paint. It looks darker and will match my throttle body and other stuff much better now I think.
Here is the diff between the Chevrolet Orange spray paint I used and a bowtie painted in IOM that I am currently working on:
