Now see thats the color blue I would love to have the xB in. If they make it in that color for next years RS I am gonna be so freakin pissed. Although I couldn't wait for next year anyways.

Very nice job on the painting.

Finally got around to doing some of the touch-ups on my engine cover. Here's the first pic I took of it




This is a better picture, and this is after my Engine Torque Damper install!

I'll let you know in a day. I've got some pluses and minuses on it, but I'm gonna write an install tutorial. I'll put all my comments on there. It's a real easy install, but I figure the more tutorials we have on the site, the bettter.

I painted it on afterwords. Couldn't find any paint-on high temp paint, so I just sprayed some white engine paint into a cup and used a foam brush to put it on.

What paint did ya'll use?

"Engine Paint?"

"Krylon Fusion?"

Generic Paint?

I am planning to paint mine in one of several ways:
Scottish Flag
Pirate Flag
Tartan (not sure HOW to mask to make the complex pattern)

Do the flag and show some love!

I should paint mine the Japanese flag that would be easy and sick.

I also thought about getting a guy to paint some kanji on my gas cover cap and liftback handle. Like a yellow basecoast with red lettering then paint the doorhandles the same color to match...

One idea . . .
Scottish flag with the Japanese sun in the center (at the cross of the white).
To look right, it would NEED to have a white border around the red disk.
