Do it yourself custom painted engine covers

Was wanting to see what other fellow members did to improve the looks of their engine covers themselfs without buying one that was already done.

Nice like how it matches the car!! Did you prime or the parts first before you painted them

Nothing special. Just wanted it to match the car a little better

This is how I did mine



But a quicker way is to do the same minus the taping. Then take 3m pad or sandpaper and lightly scuff off the paint over the lettering. then hit it with the clearcoat
