When I painted mine I cleaned them and painted them with a brush, all while they were on the engine. You do the same thing Matt?

Holy crap Matt! How the heck did you get that thing so clean? I need to know, I want to clean mine up a bit. And that paint looks really nice on there.

Just spray the paint in a container, and brush it on.

I just used spray paint and thin cardboard to mask off the other areas. It was intresting. Second coat will be brushed on however. I use armoal tire shine on the back parts, and I scrub and scrub the **** out of everthing that was dirty!

Ok, cardboard and tape. Great job getting all the way down in there. The headers are really down in that bay. First getting them clean enough, then getting the paint on them. That'* quite the accomplishment! I've pulled the FEM off...I can appreciate what you must have gone through to make it so you couldn't see the normal rust color.
