Painted my faded cowl piece

If anyones car is like mine, that black cowl piece between your windshield and hood is probably faded to all hell. I got tired of looking at the POS, so I did something about it. I didnt take any before pictures, but you can imagine it being a greyish white color all over the cowl instead of a nice deep black. Im going to post a how-to in the proper section, I just wanted to show you guys the outcome.

Took about 2 hours total time taking it off, painting it, letting it dry, and sticking it back on... real simple, and makes the car look a lot better. Here's some pictures:

It actually looks really good. Theres a guy with a red 95 that did it and a 96 mystic that did it over on SVTP Looks awesome, but they said it was really costly to prep since its sort of a matte feel stock, and they had to get it smooth.
