WOW! These covers are all amazing!! I may need to get in touch with someone to do mine. How does it work with me living in California and all? Do I just ship it to someone and they ship it back when it's done?

I took mine to an auto body shop and they did it for me. I had some paint it red and the centerpiece black then I had a decal made for the centerpiece which the graphics place put on. then I took it back to the auto body shop where they put the chrome decal stripes on then clear coated the whole thing. I believe they use the same paint they use to paint the outside of the car.
Since this picture was taken I have added chrome caps instead of black ones that or seen here

I'm working on my engine cover and I want to paint the 5.7, V8 and HEMI lettering but I really suck with a paint brush. It seems impossible to mask the lettering with tape.
Does anyone know of any overlays or other methods of masking and painting these letters?

I put decals on my letter instead of painting and striping kit. then I had it clear coated to seal everything in I had an auto body shop do all the work for me. I got the 5.7 liter v8 letters and striping kit from a place online called reflective concepts
