    Just finished doing the Paint Engine Cover thanks to the DIY's on the forums. It turned out decent, despite being bad at stuff like this. My tape wasn't as sticky as I wanted, so it was a pain. Oh well haha, here it is:

    lol I like either way really. I was just tired of seeing all these DIY mods that I'm not really capable of attempting. So when I saw this one, I thought I might be able to try it out haha. Wanted to at least do ONE thing to my truck myself!!

    Looks good. now just wash the engine compartment and so the black looks clean black and it will really offset the color difference.
