Thanks guys, I'll try & get some pics asap of the finished Main Fuse box cover even though its really not finished. I have a few imperfections so I want to sand & repaint again. Was to damn windy yesterday & something flew into the final coat of clear.

Did you use any plastic paint for the primer, etc? I hate to break it to you, but its all just a matter of time before that paint bubbles up from the heat in the engine bay. I have had to repaint mine several times, hopefully i got it right this time.

It looks great though, hopefully you wont have any troubles..
