SNV, Painting the cover is really not that hard with a little patience. You can even try a practice spray on plastic to get a feel for the process. I did

Looks good Landshark! Just finished my dashboard trim and door panels. Not as easy as the engine cover. Talking about lots of patience! Should be installing tomorrow and will take pics.

The great state of Michigan needs another shark ruining the I-75. While I'm here, did you split off the O2 sensor to your cold air box? I thought I read that from you somewhere on the forum. Can't find it Did it help?

This is what I did.. applied the K.I.S.S. method since I'm not a paint guy. Used high temp rattle can engine paint.

I know this is not engine covers but it is my own mod. I took the cloth panels off the doors, removed the cloth, glue and did a ton of prep and ended up with these. You can order this kit through various GM parts vendors but they have been out of stock for two months. They cost anywhere from 360 to 450 depending on where you can back order them so I thought I would do my own. The long dash trim is not shown because of the endless times I have redone them and are still in progress. The panels were redone totally three to four times!The panels were installed today. A very trying project to say the least but it has kept me busy the last couple of weeks. If I am lucky I may have the dash trim done tomorrow if it turns out alright. I will show pics of the final product when it is done.

All the engine covers are great. I can't wait to get mine in so I can start painting.

Teccboxx ..... where did you get the round medallion in the center? I've been trying to come up with something different for that area and like what you've done.

dragom ..... where did you get the chrome oil cap?

Thanks!

You have to remove the interior door panels and then remove the cloth panels from the door panel. Thye are attached with plastic heads and you have to cut the heads with a dremel. Replacing the painted panels you have to use 3/8" screws and washers. The dash trims are held with clips and pop off.

The panel that holds the cloth is a very thin plastic if held to the light (when the glue is off) you can practically see through it. It is very sensitive when I scraped off the glue on it. It actually damaged in with deep scratch marks! I learned the hard way using a flat razor knife that you would use for this process. Tip: use mineral spirits or a light amount of paint stripper with a cloth to dissolve the glue and never use a tool. I could not believe how sensitive it was. I had to use bondo to smooth out the scratches the razor knife made. Lots of sanding, wet sanding and primer took care of it. 4/5 rounds of it! Y

A cheap tip using the yellow paint: I ordered the Ralley Yellow paint from duplicolor(20 bucks a can) but of course I ran out. I went to Wal Mart of all places and found an EXACT match! It was Krylon Sun Yellow however it is gloss. I used a satin clear glaze to tone it down. It costs 3 bucks a can!
