Painting My Engine Plastics
I wanna paint my engine plastics, is this easy or will it look shitty if im not careful? I'm trying to decide if I should do it myself or have someone do it for me, and what kind of paint do you all use? Thanks.

just take it to your local body shop and have them do it.
or just do this. go to local paint supplier. buy bulldog spray it on . let it dry follow instructions on can. spay your desired color. a few coats but not to thick. then let it dry very very good. and spray clear coat on it. and let it dry for a day or so. to be safe . though i know guys that have the body shop do it. that way the paint is actually baked on in the paintroom and then cleared. this wil ensure that it sticks and does crack . smile have a great time! buy the time you go and buy all the stuff you could have it done professionaly. thumbsup
