oh well. might as well join those posting the pics up.
here's mine with aluminum painted engine plastic covers..
i actually just didn't use any primer. i just cleaned it off before spray painting it. after that, i went and sprayed a couple of coats of silver spraypaint. after that, i clear coated it with another couple of coats. it's a great mod if you choose the right color to match with your car. BTW, when you go get your spray paint, before sure to get the engine paint that's high heat resistant. remember, it gets really hot underneath the Hood
so you don't want your paint to start wearin down..
