I'm actually about to paint my engine cover soon. Just trying to finalize what paint scheme I'm going with. So once I get it done I'll post some pics here of it.

They are a light silver(looks white) vinyl letters for about $20.Put them on then clearcoat after so the ends wont come lose with age /cleaning. Bought them from Reflective Concepts

Here's how I had mine painted. The silver parts are the stock cover paint. I only had the center and sides painted. Haven't quite figured out what to do about the lettering yet.
