Seen the mod were the whole engine cover has been painted, but didn't want to chance messing that up so I decided to just make a simple little change to the cover. Thoughts?

Didn't use any base just used Testors Enamel Yellow. Took about 4 coats to cover well. Waiting to see how well it will hold up. Might have to do a touch up now and then, but that ok I got a lot of paint left over:D

Agreed. Looks good. Nice, simple touch, yet adds some snap under the hood.
Well done!
:cheers:

:cheers: WOW that looks great. :cheers: Not to much, not to little. I think if you had painted the whole engine cover it woud have been over kill. I think I might copy you when my RL arrives, unles you are opposed to it.

I actually don't like this idea. I can understand having different brand names under the hood for various things such as parts and stuff, but having an Oil company brand on the oil cap seems a little funny to me, since I'm not sure about you, but I wouldn't fill my car with the exact same oil each and everytime for the life of the car....(or the cap, heh) Just seems like an unnecessary add on. Sorta like these import "racers" that slap a vinyl sticker on the side of their cars for a part company, meanwhile they don't have ANY part installed from that company.

Actually my car only runs mobil 1 synthetic oil in it so i would like to have that instead of the regular one and yes that is what i will keep running in mine Ion Redlines and corvettes REQUIRE that oil so if a vette uses it it has to be good.. no one is vinyling there car out and i DO have that stuff in mine so NUFF SAID

I can't back this up because I heard it many years ago, and I don't know how valid it really is, but I heard it was better to use the same brand of oil in your car everytime you change it.

Antonio, Why would not you use the same weight of oil? Why would not you use the same brand of oil? Skip..:) :) :)
