Painted the ole engine cover

Don't like the paint matching here. I guess stores don't carry CRT.

Need to go to a Auto Paint Supply House. They will have it but need to have a gun that can spray also.

Suddenly the $350 painted version sounds cheaper. Already spent $50 on paints and other stuff.

Here is one of my smaller guns i have that i use for small projects like this. Doesn't require as much to clean it out every time you use it.

You can get custom mixed rattle can paint on line. It's more expensive then off the shelf paint but it will be a near perfect color match. You just need to know the paint code for your color. I used Paintscratch.com and they matched IOM perfectly for about $30 shipped.

It covers so much junk attached to motor. Plus with my hex vents it protects the motor from getting filthy.

My buddy is a painter so when I said I was going to attempt to paint it........ he please just give it to me.
After he painted it he sprayed the CAI glass the black cherry by over reducing the color with clear to make it transparent.
