07/15/2009: Engine Cover Painted
Well all, got the engine cover painted tonight and shoved back in the truck (after dark).
Here be the story:
So I had the cover out and all masked up, ready to be painted.
I checked the directions on the primer and spray paint and noticed the clear instructions:
"Use in an open air and well ventilated area, like an open garage."
"Ok" I asked my brain, "Can we do it in a closed air, poorly ventilated area like the apartment bathroom?"
"I don't see why not." my brain replied. So I got about setting up a painting area in the ol' commode:
Got a few coats on, and voila! 45 minutes and 5 to 10,000,000 dead brain cells later I emerged from the WC, light headed and victorious, clutching my newly painted engine cover like a small child who had just received a Nintendo 64 for Christmas
I promptly took it out into the dark evening and set it on the hood to take bad pictures with a lot of enthusiasm. It's hard to tell, but the color match is almost perfect:
And a few more looks of it back in the bay:
WOW I love the way you did this. Its looks great. Can I ask what color blue you used, and where you got it?
