Here are a couple pictures of what the engine bay looks like when you get the car from the factory. I know engine bay pictures "exciting" and most people don't know what they are looking at. Anyways I have started taking my car to car shows and the engine bay is a big part of what get judged so I knew this is something I needed to work on. OK the stock color of the engine cover is Silver you can order an additional cover in your car's color for an additional $350 so that didn't happen. Well now that I want to enter in shows I was curious how much it would cost me to get it painted, turns out around $250 but how I wanted it $350. Pictures of the engine cover stock. First I sanded down all the silver to give it some texture and get rid of the shine and added three coats of yellow. I wanted the letters to be black so they would stand out against the yellow background so I had the letters cut out in vinyl. Applied them to the cover and put two coats of clear coat over them. Next I wanted the black to have more of a gloss finish two it so I taped off the yellow put to coats of adhesion promoter and some white primer (so I could see any missing spots when I "Paint it Black"). Next I sanded the primer and washed / prepped it for paint. Then three coats later of a gloss back and one clear coat all the painting was done. Finally I wanted to add some chrome flair to it so I drilled out the fake bolt heads on the cover went to the local hardware store and purchase some real bolts with a chrome finish to them and put them in. Then I had my buddy Roger, laser a chrome plate that said "Transformers Edition" and I bought and LS3 badge and had him laser in "Camaro RS/SS" in that for me. Sorry I don't have any pictures yet of it installed in the car I will post them on Friday. I'm going to pick up a chrome oil cap as will with an Autobot symbol on that, I hope that will not overdue it on the chrome but I'll just have to see. UPDATE!!! 9-16-11 As promised pictures of it installed in the engine bay. I also painted the fuse cover, actually I painted that first to see if the yellow I purchased was going to match the car. If not that would have been a lot cheaper to replace as compared to buying a new engine cover.
