5.0 Engine Cover

If you have your engine cover painted, did you do it yourself or did you bring it to a shop? Just wondering... Pics would be useful too.

A lot guys are doing them selves. I took mine and had done at a shop with real car paint. Sanded prepped smooth. Then painted. Did this way I could wash just like do my car.

I will dig up picture. I ended up selling to a member here.

Thanks. It was done professionally as I said. Sanded completely smooth. And used actually car paint. Not spray cans. Clear coated and all. Then buffed and waxed.
