Re-painted 5.7L HEMI engine cover lettering (2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Lmtd)

I decided to re-paint the lettering on my V8 engine cover from silver to red to give it a different look. I think it turned out well.

Turned out well, nice job! Tape job in between the letters couldn't have been fun.

i really like how it stands out, hopefully the paint adheres to the plastic well and you have small feet for a guy

I love it and am looking to do the same thing (just different color)

How long did you let it sit to dry after you sprayed it?

The mods that make you feel the most proud are the ones that didn't cost alot but have a huge impact.
