I painted my engine cover with duplicolor and used krylon triple thick clear (or something like that) It has held up to the heat, even on my braces and everything. All I had to do was sand it so it's smooth.

yup sanded the covers then paint them, then more sanding, more paint over and over. Kinda took forever cuz I have a 3 color design. Also put a couple of coats of clear on it to with some more sanding. :welcomeFP:

yeah just a time consuming project and patience is needed. The paint will come out better in warmer weather anyways.

Just take your time, use light coats, make sure to give it time to dry.

I didn't sand mine, I only sanded my metal pieces, like the dogbones and stb a lot of people are shocked that I didn't sand my cover itself, but that's been 1 year in May and it still looks like I just did it.

Some plastics work really well, while others just let the paint run

Krylon Fusion works great on plastics. But the average engine enamel works fine too.
