Not too bad. I would probably give the two covers a light sanding and drop a couple more coats on there in order to get a nice gloss look like the air intake pipe.

Yeah im gonna have to second that! Give it a nice 1000 or more Grit sand before each coat and a thick clear coat. And dont do it in the dark!

Looks pretty rough brother. I've seen some very nice DIY paint jobs here that look like they were done in a spray booth, this looks like a rattle can job. Sorry man, just my opinion.

And can you guys recomed a paint to use? Im not going to a body shop to paint under the hood. So far i like the look of the red and black engine. It looks better then before but it needs to be redone.

On the cover's you need to use paint specifically for plastic. Dupont makes some that i've used before.

use some sand paper and paint thinner to try and remove the paint...

then take 1000 grit to it ans see how flat you can get it (i wouldnt use a machine sander it has a tendancy to melt the plastic)
then try a nice layer of spray on primer... (you may want to use a plastic adhesion promotor before this step but its up to you to try...)
let that dry for a while (a thick layer takes a long time to set to be hard) then sand that down with 200-400 gritt this will help smoth out the grainy testured cover...
then try the paint, then wet sand (200-400 grit wet) and then the clear coat...

see where that gets you... good luck

BTW: i like the what you are trying to achieve just a little more work is needed...

I usepaint for plastic, did first coat with plastic primer and the several coats of paint. I also did mine with everything out of the car. I'm booked this weekend so I won't be able to help you clean it up. Don't forget to clean everything before paining and then clean again! Don't mind the rough crowd, you are doing the best you can with what you have. I will give you a biz if my plans change, I have a date with some pesky doves on Saturday in Sacramento.

Why not use this as an opportunity to get outside the box.. Check out videos by edhubb on youtube. He shows you how to do several different custom paint techniques. You could easily do a marble or wrinkle effect over what you have, then clear, sand, clear, repeat until smooth....

well I felt painting the intake would be overdoing it, I like the way the cai looks like it is. It was very simple and my first spray paint job I've ever done. I just sanded the grey part and some of the v8 logo in the middle with 300 or 400 grit sandpaper. Then I cleaned it with dishwashing soap and water. Dried it and wiped it down with rubbing alcahol on a paper towel. Then sprayed 2-3 times of adhesive promoter. Then maybe 2 light coats and 2 medium coats of orange-red duplicator engine enamel spraypaint. Then maybe 2 clear coat sprays and done. Did the black Chevrolet lettering with a sharpie.
