Synergy Green engine cover & fuse box

After seeing many people adding some color to the engine cover I decided to give it a try. This was my first time ever trying some thing like this. Let me know what you think.

I got the paint from Pep Boys, my local auto parts store. The brand is Dupli-Color Engine Enamel (Grabber Green). I only painted the green the black is the original color of the cover. The black on the fuse box I used a sharpie. Both parts were covered with a clear coat made by Dupli-Color. Can says it is good for engine blocks, air cleaners, oil pans, valve covers, water pumps, & intake manifolds. Withstands intermittent temps up to 500 degrees F. I can update over time and see if there are any problems with the paint. Thanks
