This paint is meant for up to 300 degrees F. and is perfect for the heat-shield, valve cover, but not for Brakes or headers.
First a picture of the nice stock engine bay pre-paint.
Well to do this right you need to remove the valve-cover (plastic) first then you can remove the four 12mm bolts that hold the heat shield in place. I also took the bolts with me when I pulled them off.
Once I removed the parts I went ahead and painted the parts. The paint is applied in a way completely different then what an experienced painter would do. I followed the instructions and it states you must put 3 HEAVY coats. The first coat horizontal, second vertical and the third diagonal, with a five minute wait between each coat. This is interesting to me since a heavy coat is against what I normally do when I paint but oh well. Then let the paint dry for a lot of hours it is a slow drying paint.
Here is a close up so you can see the wrinkle.
I also did this to the plastic valve cover, but changed the grey lettering to red I like red.
The paint is still tacky and will be drying for awhile to go.
While I was at it I decided to do the calipers with just plain caliper paint. I am just showing it off.
My final thoughts are that this is a good product and it makes for a slightly different look to the vehicle and adds another avenue to what can be done.
I hope you enjoyed it.
