Painted my battery and fuse box cover to match my CAI. Might do the engine cover this weekend. Was thinking about doing the plastic front piece the hood latch sits on too :crazy:

I have the Kona Blue and I am also using the candy apple red as my alternate color so I absolutely love this! You gotta get rid of that ugly yellow hood release yet!

Also, love the painted hood insulation!

Thanks !! I'm going to paint my cargo cover too, haven't decided what yet though.

And I agree, the Boomba hood release is on my to buy list. Not sure why I didn't get it when I got the other Boomba stuff :money:

Oooh! Let me know how that cargo cover turns out! Would love to do maybe The Pens logo. Actually, I am a terrible artist so maybe I need to pay someone to do that! :)

This is HoK Candy Apple Red. However you can use Duplicolor Metalcast Red, just put silver under it. The Duplicolor is almost the exact same color and in a spray can, unless you have spray equipment and feel like paying for HoK :money:

Clean the plastic really good with soap and water. Let it dry, then wipe with alcohol. Try not to handle it with bare hands after you clean it, use gloves. Then spray metallic gold or silver and get a nice even coat (It will take a couple). Then spray with the metal cast, 6 to 8 coats. You can spray a gloss clear afterwards, even though the Metalcast will dry glossy, it is fragile. Make sure the silver base coat is the same brand as the Metalcast, so use Duplicolor. If you use the wrong base (i.e. enamel vs lacquer) the Metalcast will cause the base coat to wrinkle.
