I recommend this flat black paint on small projects if you black things out... Never let me down just take your time and spray a mist left to right. Add three coats and your good

You could use semi gloss too. Trojan recommended that one.

This is the driver side wiper I'll show you on. There exactly the same way on both. No when you get the wiper off you'll see under the wiper look for the letter L or the letter R. This is so you don't swap the wipers around (driver L eft, passenger R ight)

Pull this switch to remove wiper. When off you see it's basically a latch.

Use the krylon flat black spray paint for better looks. And spray lightly away like 6 inches away so your basically mist spray. That's how painters paint.

Re: Gloss black maf sensor

Looks good.

If you paint things exposed to the sun and rain I would use the semi-gloss Dupli-Color paint.
It will hold up much better outside in the elements and if you accidently hit it with wax when you are waxing it won't affect it as much as flat black.
You can actually wax it if you desire without any ill effects.
You can get Dupli-Color paints at almost any automotive parts store.

You need to find the part up in these threads on how to do it. I'll have an answer tomorrow. I did this before it's pretty straight forward, and as far as tight spaces- as you mechanical skills get better the easier it'll get.

I'll see what I can do. It'll take a while but it's what I'll do tomorrow.

I'm wondering should I use flat black or satin like they say. Or semi gloss I'll try flat black. Satin is the color the plastic already is. Flat black will seem a lot better just watch when you wax.

Better use satin they really recommend it. Since it bonds to plastic better. I'm going to do this another day. It will be easy tho you just have to follow the instructions. To me it's common sense because I did it before but to a first timer it's always confusing. Just take your time. I don't wanna do bc I super glued the wiper hoses to the sprayers connected to the crowl itself. I wish I could show you. Try to you tube it?

Flat paints are porous, thus they don't wear well outside.
The semi-gloss is very similar to the satin.

You know, I wonder what one of those headlight polishing kits will do on the cowl?
They are plastic too and you wouldn't be depending upon trying to get paint to stick to it.

Next take these pins out. There's three all together. If you damage them it's no big- you can find them at any auto store I already have a pack I'll show you the pack when I'm done so you'll know what to look for

Alright after that close the hood... Then take the windshield wipers off.

Alright get a flat head screw driver and start prying. BE EASY WITH DOING THIS!!! I EMPHASIZE THIS BE VERY EASY!!! If you feel as if it isn't working with you take a break calm down and try again remember this is a four hour job! Don't risk cracking the crowl they're quite expensive. However you can find them on American muscle if you accidentally break it.

Wash the crowl with soap and water then clean with alcohol.

I might think about painting my lower crowl to. You see this part in the engine bay.
