before and after pics of painted engine cover

What a difference painting the engine cover makes! While at it I also painted the fuse box lid and added an ADM cai.

OMFG! That looks SWEET! I like the way you either painted the simulated fastener heads that GM molded-into the part, or drilled them out and put real Stainless Steel screws on there. (Hard to tell from the pics). Awesome job, dude. Total perfection! Now I'm DEFINITELY doing mine next weekend!

Looks great. I think that your fuse box cover is even more impressive!

Awesome job!!! Very nice indeed. Where did you get the center SS emblem for your engine cover? That is awesome!

looks very nice, on a different note, how do you like your ADM cold air intake system?

In answer to a few of the questions:
  1. I bought some hex head screws, cut the caps (tops) off of them, and then used automotive adhesive to stick them to the engine cover. I didn't want to drill any holes in the cover and this seems to have worked out very well so far.
  2. I bought the SS emblem on the front from the CarBeyond store, on ebay I think. My only disappointment with this is that I thought it was going to be an actual chrome/metal piece but it is more like a bubble sticker. If I had to do it over again I'd search out a metal piece but what I have will work for now.
  3. The ADM cai has been great so far. No issues whatsoever. I've never done anything under the hood before other than checking my oil so the fact that ADM had videos on their website on how to do the install helped me with my decision. That an their reputation on this board helped too. It was really a pretty easy install and I'd get it again if given the choice.
