I just cleaned mine up good, Primed it with Rust-oleum Plastic Primer, painted the whole thing with a metalic wheel paint then finished up the letters with model paint

There'* a lot you could to with those covers. You could also use wide stripping tape or Prism tape on the letters. Red, Blue, Green. You'd have to trim around the letters with a hobby knife. Wonder how it would last in the heat? Any body tried that yet?

There are sticker overlays for the Series 2. Should work fine.

Ken Nice look dude I like the 'neat' wire looms.
I used a bit o finger nail polish on my lettering. Holds up well and you can give multiple coats for that liquid look (not too thick or it does chip).

This was discussed at length during our problems with Floz Superchargers. Eaton and Magnusson both advise AGAINST painting the SC. The paint on it from the factory is designed to bleed heat and allow for cooling. Painting it will trap heat.

I repainted all my letters with a model paint pen, and if anything went where i didn't want to, i used my dads fine point scratch awl to clean it up.
