How did you paint them? What type of paint did you use?

That looks great! I almost wouldn't do any more, because it's perfect as it is.....

i wiped down the plastic with plenty of mineral spirits,i used the brake caliper paint that i did my calipers with,so it would all match.about 3 coats and then a nice clear coat.its been a few months already,no chips or scratchs,clean with simple green.the digital camera hides the polished aluminum,thats were the work is.it looks way better in person.were is yours?later,Todd.

Looks nice:thumbsup: I painted mine all in red (fuel covers, 2 tans, and fan shroute). Plan to pain the intake manifold and air tube pewter in the very near future.
:cheers:

Iceburgh's car is a real standout. I saw it last year at Shanksville and at BG. Very nice:cool: :cheers:

You guys that do so much detailing have my respect. I know the amount of work that goes into it.:cheers:
