My coil cover paint job

Just wanted to show you all some of my recent work. Took me a while but finally got it to look pretty good. I used a high heat engine enamel primer, duplicolor dark shadow gray ( seems to be a perfect match to UJ sterling grey metallic), high heat gloss black engine enamel, and a engine enamel high heat clear. Now just gonna let it sit in the garage for a week, polish it and throw it back in the car. Working on the other one as I type this.

One pic is of the final product, and the other is after about an hour and a half of exactoknifing letters.

What kind of paint do you use for this? And how much are they roughly?

I used engine enamel primer, black and clear and just dark shadow grey duplicolor for the grey. Plus all the sandpaper it's about 40-50 in materials the first time and cheaper after that. Although the paint goes much faster than you think it will.

Do you really need the high temp paint? I mean, these are plastic parts. The reason why I'm asking is that I'm planning to paint the covers on my 2014 GT this week. The high temp paint is limited on colors and was thinking about using some good spray paint for plastics.

Not exactly, it doesn't get engine block hot. I got my paint from www.automotivetouchup.com and I got the primer, my Race Red basecoat, and clearcoat. Did it over 2 years ago and no issues and I get tons of compliments at local car shows. The website also tells u step by step instructions to make sure u get the best quality possible Click image for larger version

I painted mine with Rustoleum Painters Choice 2x Ultra-coat and it turned out very nice.
