Has anyone ever tried to paint the palstic covers under the hood? If so did the paint stick well or was there pealing problems?

Thanks.

I used VHT spray brake caliper paint. One can is enough to do all the plastic covers. Cleaned really good with soap and water, dried, then painted. Used about 3 thin coats. It's also temp resistant. No problems with it sticking on good.

I got the paint online somewhere. Just did a google for it. I think some stores have it though. It's proably a haz surcharge to ship anyway.

Where online can I get that paint? Do you think that they will have the '01 color Auburn Sky Pearl?
