Alright when you go to paint, use a semi gloss krylon I used regular satin paint bc they didn't have the semi gloss, comes out the same but semi gloss just that semi gloss comes out shinier.
When painting I'd suggest test painting the back sides of the crowls.

Then when your ready paint the crowls themselves...

You can paint this also. This is the radiator cover I'm going to paint it just like I did the lower crowl... With flat black as a primer and satin for the second coat and gloss black for finish. This looks great.

Like I said. Flat black first, then satin, then the final coat gloss black. Doesn't that look amazing.

PUTTING THE UPPER CROWL BACK IN IS THE HARDEST PART GET SOMEONE TO HELP YOU ADJUST THE HOOD.

Crowl is in place, now you have to tuck in the corners.

Those corners are hard to put back in.

---------- Post added at 02:03 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:01 PM ----------

Now the upper crowl has clicking pins to insure it to be held in place. Here are some ideas if you can tell by my picture where to press. Use a little common sense here...

If you wanna clean the rubber seal use tire cleaner. I recommend black magic.

Spray let stay for like 5 minutes and wipe good with a micro fiber.

And basically you use these to connect the upper crowl to the lower crowl.

Now close the hood and put the wipers back on. You could also paint those. I recommend flat black first and gloss black for final coat.

---------- Post added at 02:43 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:21 PM ----------

Now the radiator cover. When that's dry installment is straight forward use those pins. Place it and pin it in.

Check everything over make sure you didn't miss anything.

I recommend detailing your motor.

The washer fluid cap and radiator cap isn't in the pick. I painted those also. I'm going to buy the kit to replace all those caps with chrome caps.
