That price is outrageous bro. Get some DuPont engine paint, I'm sure you can find a candy apple red or something, and paint them yourself. Just wipe them clean with windex, make sure they're dry really well, and apply about 3-4 coats.

I did mine in Ford racing blue. Mine aren't glossy, but you can use a high gloss paint.

Thanks but I only used regular painters tape so the lines are not as clean as I would have hoped, but it is not as how car. This was done just for the fun of it. Really, my wife said why... Who is going to see this. True! I wasn't going to show this here, so now I guess people will see it. Either way the coil covers are very easy no tape. Just pain them. My other crap... Could be stripped of, panted black or whatever... Just for fun. I like the turn out, but not a big deal. Just wanted to show how easy it is to do.

How many coats did you use with the DuPont engine paint? Do they have exact color match with the engine paint or did you just find a similar color?

I did just the closest or near color. GHIG was not exact. I did three coats on every thing to ensure the sides and words were covered. I probably would do more if you were waning to make I show ready and not miss the lettering gaps anywhere.

To the op first off your going to have to remove the hood then the strut tower brace. Now your have way through. Pull the intake off and now you can reach your coil covers without anything getting in your way. Good luck brother.

I have a set of stock ones for sale if anyone is looking for a set...Taking them off and putting them back on is as simple as putting the key and turning your car over...No need to remove any parts other than disconnecting the two oil lines.

I hope your kidding! Remove the hood?! Why do you need to pull the strut tower brace? The intake has nothing to do with the coil covers and the coil covers can be removed completely in like 2 minutes. They simply clip on

I chose a Flat Blue from O'Reillys. A couple of light coats of Adhesion Promoter, then painted them. Chances are, I'll later paint them to match the Race Red. But, I've had several compliments on the Flat Blue. All I have to do is, keep my greasy-fingered service tech from touching the flat painted surfaces.

Hey, first off the paint looks great. I just had a quick question, did you primer at all before painting green or did you just clean and paint? Also it is a little hard to tell but is the dupont color you chose a high gloss? thanks

Just clean and paint. I used DUPLI-COLORTM Engine Enamel with CeramicTM, Grabber Green I think was the color. Also it is gloss but don't remember if it stated that on the can. I hope that helps.
