Personally, unless you are showing your truck, it's just a way to pass the time. If it were a part that were visible all the time like rims, or your bumper, that's different. Hence why my engine and all of it's components have a nice coating of mud, while the outside of my truck looks nice and clean.
I should let it be known that in my younger days I used to always clean out the engine bay and paint random things. Now I'm happy leaving that alone and taking my OCD elsewhere.
dude, the longest part was actually painting the silver. i just used a paint marker to go over the letters then cleared it all. itll be painted again soon.
Did you have to use High-Heat paint? Or did you use standard spray paint plus a standard clear spray? Looking to do some of this stuff and don't want to see my paint burn off because it gets too hot under the hood. Advice?
i didnt use high temp. the stuff i painted shouldnt get to hot.. i used krylon fusion on the base color and painters choice paint markers for the details. the throttle body cover is actually off of my truck again as well as a few other little things to be re done.
