Painted engine cover

It's not completed yet but I'm so thrilled with how it turned out, I just had to show it off! Still needs to be color sanded but for the last 3 days, I have been battling the heat to get this done! (the pic is taken with my cell phone so not the best quality) It's old school but that's what I wanted!

Hi Angie i've noticed you've been adding a lot of pink touches to your car lately. i'm wanting to do the same thing. i've been thinking about painting the calipers pink. although a different shade of pink. more of a dark hot pink. I want a small amount of pink incorporated somewhere on the car without going overboard and looking tacky. keep up the good work.

It's pretty much done other then wet sanding it tomorrow. Still have the fuse box to do, we ran out of paint so it's sitting in primer on the car right now. I have a rotofab CAI that should b here sometime this week that is color match to the car with pink lettering so it should all tie in nicely. Going to try and work on the stock bowtie that goes on the cover but not sure if I'm are going to use it, may make my own design for it.

Good luck. Pink is a HARD color to find in the car world. Most of it has to be special ordered and that means more $$ but it's worth it. I like having something different then norm, fits my personality Good luck! Hit me up if you need help, might b able to hook you up with the right people.

Ur wife has excellent taste I wanted an old style flame. I grew up going to car shows as my dad is a street rodder so I saw all kinds of flames and I always loved the ones you saw jetting down the side of a black '57 chevy flamethrower. I know everyone does the realistic flames but I like the old stuff

angie, that is hot!!! I had a lowered truck prior to my camaro that I used to put in shows. I did something similar with flames under the hood so I can appreciate all the work that was involved in laying that out and masking the area. Good Job

Actually had a local company that builds street rods sell me their product. I know a lot of people recommend Krylon but it's hard to find in the colors I needed. That's why I had to go to this particular shop. Cost me a small fortune just for the paint alone on that engine cover and its still not done and I have the fuse box to do yet too. It's just sitting in primer on my car as I type this.

All in due time Still got the fuse box too and the engine cover isnt finished. I'm moving into my new apt this week so it's all gonna have to wait until next week but I couldn't let that CAI sit in a box for a week so I had to find time to install it tonite
