    Default engine bay covers

    well i painted the engine bay covers today just went for black with red stripes.
    just need to decide what sticker to put in the middle now then i can lacure it and really get it shiny.

    so anyone any ideas what to put in the middle i was thinking something simple like
    3.0 V6 in red but am open to any better ideas

    looks good, Did you spray the black? I think if you painted the caps as well it would make it blend in better.

    What did you clean it off with? I will be taking a can to my covers very soon.

    i wiped down the covers with meths and gun cloth (we get it from work for cleaning the tanks gun) then primed with primer and sprayed black just used normal spray paint i had lying arround in the garage then once dry i painted the red bits with a brush and some hammerite smooth
