A cheap mod that looks nice. Thanks for the tip.

Or, as we Brits would say: enhances the ambiance of the engine enclosure. By the way if Bob's your Uncle then Fanny's your aunt

just for 24 hours... mainly for the hood prop holder... it'll see alot more action than the rest... The krylon can recommends 24 hours til it's usable, 7 day til it's fully fused and is chip-resistant.

If you say so, but my engine bits say it won't . No, I didn't use Fusion, but I used the paint for RC bodies . Worked for awhile, but still came off in small sheets.

Look under the hood prop holder. Use pliers (wide lock) to pinch the tabs inward and pull it out

Is it hard to get that tranny plug for the dip-stick out? Is there any way a leak can result from not seating it back in properly? ty.

I did this a couple of days ago and it looks great, but the paint chipped on the coolant and windshield washer cap even though I let it sit for 24hrs, and that was a long time for me not to be able to drive my car , I will try again, umm later, too busy to go w/o my car for a day again. It definetly bonded w/ the plastic, it just cracked on the places were u attach the caps to the resevoirs. If I would have been able to let is dry longer, it would have been fine.
