Engine & Fuse Box

Got some good ideas from people, along with a little added input of my own.... Very happy with how it looks under the hood now.. Let me know what you think...

What are in the little bottles in your 3rd picture? I like how you did this. Very nice.

I ordered the kit off of http://www.paintscratch.com/ .... It came with all the bottles pictured... the 3 little bottles were Lacquer thinner, Wax & Grease Remover, and some other stuff I believe to thin out the finish (I didn't use it)... I ordered the kit for spraying a plastic surface, so I needed the Adhesion promoter and the flexible primer also....
The finish in person looks GREAT, matches the car exactly.

Thanks!! If you take your time and prep it properly you could handle it.... Gotta make sure it's masked off good and cleaned well before painting.... Just do thin light coats rather then heavy coats when spraying... Give it a try

That was my design I incorporated.... there are two little raised labels on the box so I did not paint them, yet kept that "boxed outline look" to keep it symmetrical with the engine cover (something with rounded lines etc. would not have gone well with the design of the engine cover)

The kit is fast drying paints.... Do it at night, it'll be good to put back on in the morning, that's what I did

The paint is heat resistant, the main thing you have to do is prep & Clean properly before doing any painting. The color was matched to my Car Color Code Inferno Orange Metallic. Ordered it from paintscratch.com, and it did come with the Adhesion promoter, Primer, Basecoat (IOM), and Clearcoat. Spray multiple thin coats is the key, not one heavy coat.

Today I got to paint my Trunk Taillight covers... Same process as the engine and fuse box covers.... let me know what you think! I added a little black pin stripe masked off to give it some character, and hopefully go with the javelin stripe on the side when I get it.
