Thanks The scratch removal process is very straight forward, no guessing and very easy to do. If you goto youtube you can watch mutiple videos on this.. It gave me the confidence to do this myself

So here are the photos of my engine cover i recently did and kind of messed up but also didn't? lol








Everything looked really well, did a few coats of orange yesterday and let this paint sit over night (24) hrs time before clearing it.. So today i get the clear out and did 2 coats and walked away for a few minutes.. i comes back and find it looking like this! what the heck did i do wrong? I painted and cleared my previous v6 engine cover and didnt have this problem.. Yet again it looks kind of cool.. if this ends up bothering me ill end up sanding it all off and redoing it again

Damn!! Great new mods man. That's unfortunate with what happened to the paint on the engine cover. Some clears do that if it reacts bad with the paint underneath. Which paint brand did you use for the color and clear?

Thanks!!

Yeah i was pretty disapointed that i had that happen to my engine cover. Now i just need to wait for another nice day that doesnt include snow, rain, or 20 degree temps to repaint it lol. I used Rustoleum gloss protective enamel spray paint. It was perfect perfect and glossy prior to the clear. Im not sure im going to clear it next time.. otherwise ill just go without the engine cover lol

When I had my old engine cover I didn't clear mine either because I used multiple clears without success, but it didn't bubble or crack the paint underneath. Instead, it reacted with the paint and yellowed like all hell.

Good to know!, yeah I'm skipping the clear this round.. what a headache that was I plan on doing a little something extra to IOM painted areas on the cover myself and then possibly a few other things in the car

Chris i have to ask what the temperature was in the room when you painted that cover? That looks a lot like a cold reaction to the material then a paint reaction!

You know it was kind if cool out, not sure what the temperature was. It did cross my mind that it could have been the case though. I'm going to wait until its warmer out to do any kind of painting though

He chose them for warranty reasons and they will still put down some nice numbers even though they aren't longtubes. Got my adapter in today too Chris. Can't wait to see it installed.
