So i thought it might be kinda cool to paint my engine cover one saturday. It took me about 3 hours to finish all the cleaning and painting but i thought it looks pretty cool! let me know what you guys think or if you have any questions about the process! sorry the pictures are kinda small i dont know how to make them bigger yet so your goin to need your glasses for the time being

The hardest part of it all was trying to tape around the vortec lettering, but the lines were pretty easy

Here it is after about 2 hours with 4-5 coats of the krylon red paint

Finally done! The red paint is actually really bright looking in the sun and looks really good under the hood where no one can see it lol

I cant tell if that's tape in the picture or you painted it blue. I'm guessing you just painted the red. Looks awesome! I think you just gave me an idea!
