    Engine cover sprayed

    Hi all.

    Just thought i would share some pics of the engine cover. I dont have a finished picture yet as its still in the process of being finished

    So far it has a couple coats of primer and just one coat of chianti red so far..

    But here are a couple pics for a taster



    Sorry i forgot to take one of it in primer





    More pictures will follow as the progress continues

    Comments welcome

    I'd have painted the badge in with it like mine. Really easy to do and looks good!

    This was before putting laquer on it.

    Liking that colour,

    Im considering different logos at the moment,

    And the cover hasn't been lacquered yet. Going to do the writing first.
