I guess the krylon fusion holds up to the heat?

Did it "crack" like a spider web? If so that usually happens when you spray too heavy of a coat. Spray lighter coats next time, and I usually wait 30 minutes between coats and wipe with a tack cloth or microfiber towel lightly between coats.

No i didn't crack like a spider web. The paint more-so just came apart from one spot while it dried and separated. Anyways, So far so good! After applying the adhesion promoter, I painted it again using the dupli-color and it looks awesome! 3 light coats of adhesion and 3 light coats of dupli-color. I did the fuse box first and now I'm going to do the engine cover.

All y'all....use the Bulldog Adhesion Promotor on anything that expands, contracts, flexes that you plan on painting.

Cheap, you can get it in a spray can at just about anywhere, and it is an awesome primer.

We use it by the gallons here at SWS.

Covers are very easy to remove about an hour to do both sides. Thanks everyone for the feedback on the photos.

This is the artist that did my hoodliner. There are alot of fine details that the photo does not really show. The lug nuts on each rim, the rotors behind each rim just to name a few.

Sorry if I'm missing the obvious, but I was planning on painting my engine cover soon. Does the bowtie emblem come off of the cover, or do you guys just mask it? If I look at GM parts direct, I think that the emblem has a different part number than the cover itself, so that would suggest it's a separate piece? But does it come off, or do they stick it on permanently at the factory?
