painted engine cover

So i finally got more IOM paint today so i thought I would paint my engine cover. I got black CHEVROLET letters off ebay and i put them on right after the basecoat flashed. then i clearcoated right over the new emblems. came out pretty good.

I did mine like yours SSTony. Except mine is CGM and also got the letters off ebay. Turned out great. To add a little extra "flair"/demision to mine, I put some #8 SS screws/washers in the little holes across the top. (#10's are too big, just an FYI)
