V6 Engine Cover

Does anybody know the part number of the painted '3.6L VVT' engine cover? Mine does not have the VVT nor is it painted. I have attached photos of both. I think mopar started painting the letters and added the 'VVT' on the 2012's. Any help/info would be greatly appreciated, such as year and painted/non-painted letters.

My lettering is painted just like in the picture. The cover itself is black plastic, unpainted.

Re: V6 Engine Cover

i may be confusing some people. what i mean by painted is the lettering, not the entire cover. i'm looking for the painted '3.6L VVT' lettering. the rest of the cover would be unpainted. sorry if i wasn't clear.

Re: V6 Engine Cover

Just get some of that Krylon plastic paint, spray it on a small, low-nap roller and roll over the lettering.
