I used some of that dupli color high heat stuff on my spec blue. Its pretty close to the same color. I think it looks good, but you may want to get more in depth and make it match perfectly.

This is the only pic I have right now. It is also a little darker than in the pic, you know how pictures can distort colors here and there. I do not have that big plastic pieces in that is on the right side. I have a close up with all plastics in, but I need to get the film developed. I may do that tomorrow.

No, the primer will not be able to stand the high heat. I just put on about 3-5 coats, or until the paint was equal and no spots. But at least 3 coats.

When painting any thing remember prep is the key make sure the surfaces are really clean and free of oils as far as paint try to find a paint with a flex additive in it. (bumper paint) they have a bonding agent in them and your paint wont chip or flake off.

Go to Autozone and get the saphhire blue auto spray paint. It was the third color i tried for my interior pieces, and the only one that i was pleased with(i'm a perfectionist). It even has that special sparkle that our spec blue cars have thumbsup
