thanks i thought it looked wicked too, first i gave the plastic a good cleaning, first with soft-scrub(the bleach kind) then i used regular soap, then i painted.
i used "heat ready" engine paint (high gloss black, can be found at local wal-mart lmao) just incase it gets hot. then i clear coated the whole thing with 2 coats, then i used model car paints (not heat ready) to do the letters...all by hand baby.....took me 3 hrs to do 3 coats of red. then another clearcoat over the whole thing letters and all, i wanted to do it rite, but woo hoo is it bright! looks bad @$$, as soon as my friend saw it he wanted me to do his engine stuff.......argh the requests.....lol
