Thank you !



Thank you, I used clear adhesion promoter / primer and then Rust-Oleum Bright Finish Metallic Silver Paint .... no clear on the silver

The center got the same primer, then some flat black followed by 3-4 coats of clear
Thanks a mill for the info! I was thinking of either painting my intake manifold or the cover and after seeing some of the covers people have done I'm starting to lean more and more towards painting the cover.

Looks very nice, although I think I would have left the Rams head "natural".

I hate the Ram's head .... I don't think it belongs anywhere on a Charger ... my plan was to blend it in as best as possible without actually shaving it off ..

That looks SAWEEEEET! I agree a few more black accents would take it up a notch.

Very Nice job you did there..and I also agree, a little more black would set
the Cover off. Just my opinion,
for what it's worth.

I was thinking about doing this but worried that the paint would melt or bubble or something due to the heat of the engine could you let me know how it turns out later on after drivin or if your sure it won't mess the paint up

Preperation..is #1

I have been modifing & re-painting these Engine Covers for 3 years, have YET to have
any problem with the paint, decals, etc. Preperation of the material is the KEY...
