So I was looking at some of these pretty fox engine bays and noticed mine was old and dirty, it doesn't compare. I also have seen some people paint their intake manifolds and valve covers, I would like to do that. How hard is it to paint these things, is it as easy as pulling them off and painting them? Are there anything special I should do before or after painting them, like making sure I keep a certain area covered when painting, etc. Do I need a special kind of paint? Spray paint or brush on paint? Is there a tutorial I overlooked? I will eventual have the car painted black with a red strip on the trim, like this bad boy: http://www.netwalk.com/~hedo/black mustang.jpg Is it in bad taste to paint the intake manifold black and to paint the "5.0 (Ford) HO" emblem thing as such: Everything black, but the dot on the 5.0 and paint blue on the (Ford) part. I would also like to paint the valve covers black, what do you guys thing of that?
