More mods done!!

So I got bored last night and pulled off al my plastics under the hood with the exception of the air intake and shot them all with duplicolor wheel paint. Silver. I figured it would hold up to the dirt and rocks that occasionally get under the hood. I shot it with high temp primer first to seal the plastics. I still need to take pics and I will post a DIY on it. Its pretty easy to do though. Only took me all of 45 minutes from start to finish to pull it all, prep, paint, dry and reinstall!!! Pics will be posted tomorrow.

Post pics when you get a chance. I did all mine a couple months ago with the Dupli-Color high temp paint. It came out really good and holds up well. I just have something different being worked on for them right now. SHould be done soon

does anyone know if those plastic parts are really neccessary to keep on your engine? I feel like they are so "tacky" but if they will cause problems I will just leave them where they are.

You can take them off. All they are is cosmetic covers.
