    So I Had Nothing To Do & I Decided To Color Match Some Platics, Engine Cover, Fan Cover, Fuse Box Top, & The Piece That Cover The Hood Latch Mechanism, Tell Me What You Think, Feed Back Is Appreciated. .

    Nice! Looks smooth and much brighter than the stock color. I wonder how they would look if your truck wasn't black and you color matched them. Great job.

    if my truck was a different color like for examplr red like yours they would definitely stand out much more colormatched red. . you should do it to yours. .

    I was thinking of doing the same thing. I have been trying to find the color of my truck in a rattle can. How long did it take for prep? Where did you get the paint?

    well i just sanded all that stuff lightly just to remove the texture and primed it, then applied 2 whole cans of krylon fusion and that was my result all together id say it took like 4 hours to do all. . i love how it came out. .

    Have you thought about painting the coolant tank?? Its a little bit of a hassel to check the coolant by opening the cap and looking down into it, but I think it would really finish off under the hood.
