Looks really good actually, my only idea would be to paint the grey parts black or a charcoal grey.. but I'm not 100% sure you could safely do that, although with the paint I have that's good for high heat and painting manifolds it could be done. But yeah, good stuff and it gives contrast to the dark body color, I myself wouldn't mind touching up a couple things red and black/charcoal under the Hood.

the plastics has plastic clips to hold them down, just take something and press down on the middle and it will come off.

looks real good. I did mine in silver to match my car. Had it purple at one time to match the graphics, but noticed the engine plastics actually continue the bumper body line when the Hood is up so I painted the covers to match. Yours looks real good dude.

correct me if i'm wrong but did you say you did use high temp. engine paint? how many coats did you do, you could try to spray some into a bowl and paint the hard to reach parts or the parts that can't be taken off [/color]

i dont remember exactly how many coats i did, but i did thin coats everytime. im thinking it was mayb 5 coats. All the parts i painted i tooked out easily. Using a brush is not good and it will leave brush marks on the plastic. Also i didnt use clear coat on mines.

this was the paint i used
