As promised here's the final product. I think they turned out pretty good. The color seems to be pretty close. I plan painting some of the intake manifold cover but I haven't decided how much yet.

Color looks good, but I'm kinda anal and like the best color match possible... I went to http://www.automotivetouchup.com/ and did the whole primer, base, clear steps to make it body shop quality... All the steps to painting are in this site

I went to oreillys and got duplicolor engine enamel dark blue. Didn't use primer, just wet sanded with 600 grit sandpaper and applied the 3 coats as stated on the can.

Its not worth the $80 to buy the boss coil covers. They're exactly the same as the ones on the gt except blue. Definitely worth the $6 for a can of spray paint and a little of your time.

Great link man! That's pretty awesome that they can match any paint code and send you a 12oz aerosol can. They have a lot if good products too.

Not true. They are just not blue, they're entirely molded with blue polymer. So if you scratch it its still blue. If you spill something on it like brake fluid or something that would normally remove or stain paint, they're still blue. The same can't be said about painted ones. I feel they were worth every penny.

I would pay the $80 before I'd paint my stock parts. A stock car will always sale for more than one that's been personalized.

^ totally agree, I took a chance since this is such an easy and cheap part to replace... I was prepared to buy another set in case I screw these up, but thankfully they came out pretty nice

I guess, I'm lucky. Mine stock covers are close enough to the Sterling Gray exterior to not worry about. LOL.
