for the coil/plug cover I just used brake caliper paint. The ecotec supercharged cover I used the same paint just had to prime it first.

Looks nice, let us know how it holds up.. I want to do something like that, plus some serious polishing. However I don't think black would look as good as blue, or red, so I need to decide what off color I want to go with.

Bud, I was just thinking the same thing... ;) Red and black look beautiful together.. I think you just convinced me :D Let me know if you notice in peeling or flaking after you put a few hot miles on her :)

After one night, I've noticed nothing flaking or peeling. Still looking brand new. It looks so good in person, looks factory. This red shines great also. It's plasticoat red brake caliper paint rated to 900 degrees. If you do the ecotec supercharged cover also you need to prime it first.

Good Job.

WTF are you talking about? Any moron knows that CF adds at least 15hp and 20lbs of torque... :rolleyes:

A sticker on the painted surface would have netted an additional lb of boost, due to heat deflection as well...

;)

Seriously, looks tiz-ight... Seems like it matches the car in those pics pretty good.

be sure to lightly sand the area first so that the paint "sticks" better.

so long as its high temp I don't see why it wouldn't hold up

Yep, seeing it in person... I used the Ceramic High Temp(1200 Degree) engine paint made by Duplicolor. I have used it before, and it has held up pretty well, so we will see :)
