What paint did you use for the 3800 and V6 part? the same spray paint? and how did you do that get a container and just shoot the spray paint into it till it filled it?

Yes, basically.... I used the can of black rustoleum spray paint I had laying around the garage (pictured above). I sprayed it onto a piece of scrap cardboard, letting it pool up, and then used my kid'* paintbrush from their dollar store water color set, also laying around the house. They weren't too happy....come to think of it, that was the day I stole their toothbrushes to clean my rims too.
