Painting the under side of the good.

Ok, so I want to remove the ugly hood liner and just paint the under side of the hood. I'm not a paint expert or anything like that. I want to use a spray paint that will last. Has anyone done this before and if so what kind of paint did you use? Thanks in advance.

I would use engine enamel, it's high temp paint, and you can get it in a bunch of colors and finishes

They basically use a material that's sort of like vinyl, and is water activated.

The have different designs and colors on rolls and they roll it out over a tub of water + whatever chemicals they add to it, and then they dip your part (or guns, phone cases, pretty much whatever will fit) then it cures and looks sick!
