If you do a search there are plenty of topics on this including "do it yourself" threads on painting your engine cover.

I saw that one, but didn't see what type of paint he used - he also used an off-the-shelf- paint...I was going to order mine colored matched for IBM. Also wanted to know how to paint the raised letters - are they hand painted? or masked and sprayed?
