Started a little paint project.

Supplies:


Prepped, cleaned several times with denatured alcohol, then taped.




A light coat:


Proof that cleaning means really cleaning:


I had to strip all the paint back off and reclean it several times. It would have been much easier, and less messy, to just clean it right the first time.


After the cleaning and repaint, it looks much better.


The engine cover after 3 coats.

After it dries, hopefully tomorrow, I will be adding the accents. Stay tuned.

Hey Jim why didn't you use the Fusion paint made for plastic? Just curious if there was a reason for it cause I want to paint the same parts myself.

Two reasons. I already had this paint, and I have found it to be extremely durable.

On other news, I installed my valve cover on my Opel GT today, same paint, so it is related: LOL

That looks awesome Tammy I really like those flames.

Here's some pictures of my new toy that I had installed today. This time its not a Red Solstice in a movie...it's a movie in a Black SKY. I played Terminator 2 and the sound and picture quality was unbelievable. Well, worth the money. The wife can watch movies on the way to Texas while I drive

The navigation and Bluetooth work perfect too. The intallation was done by a performance sound shop and is 100% clean. No mess, wires and the Nav antenna is hidden. The IPad coonection is in the glove box and you can control it by the touchscreen.

If, anyone is thinking about something like this its preety cool - the Kenwood DNX6960 is good for the money and fits / looks perfect in the SKY.

If, anyone is interested I can take better pictures or just PM me.

It didn't require a 'GM' wiring kit, but it did need a LAN (?) based special module. The tech said that it was aftermarket, but I didn't get the name - sorry.
