Well I had some free time today and decided I wanted to do something to my car to make it a bit more unique.
I started thinking of some things I could do and decided to go ahead and paint the engine cover to match the car.
First I took the cover off and preped it for sanding:
Next I sanded it down in steps starting with 220 grit then 400 grit then shooting it with primer: (Note the red color you see is a 2nd primer that serves as a guide when wet sanding the primer down to be smooth before painting)
Next I sanded it all down and preped it for paint:
First coat was "Super Red" I beleive was the color I mixed.. a GM Color. I decided to put some red on it being my Calipers are also red, and then I taped off the areas I wanted to keep red in preperation for the next coat:
The second coat I mixed up is the same color as my car:
Then I removed the tape and got it ready to apply the final coat:
The Final Coat was the clear coat:
And here it is on the car: (will get some pictures outdoors in a little bit, just wanted to make sure the Clear has begun to harden before I run the car)
Let me know what you think! I might paint the Lettering Black to make it "pop" a little more. And sorry, for not having any on the car before pictures.. I forgot :(
