damn, I was afraid of that. I dont have a dremel nor do I know anyone who does

I was kinda thinking of yours but I didnt want to seem like I was stealing your design/idea or w/e but hell if you say its cool then I just might cause you're right it is pretty badass. Just aluminum paint for the cover? Just making sure aluminum is the right color

I used a basic silver plasti-kote engine enamel.

That car is long gone, and I think J Wikoff now owns that cover.

Wait, I'm not talking about a cover made out of wires. You and I both have 94 SSEi cars. There'* a bunch of wires that goes over the connection of the supercharger "body" and the snout. That little plastic thing covering those wires is what I painted. I don't have the rest of the supercharger cover, though.

I painted my cover with gloss black Krylon Fusion for plastic, works great EXCEPT that surface prep is really important. I had to scrub it down with degreaser and thinner. I hand painted the lettering gold and she turned out great.
