VHT "wrinkle black" is the paint I used... I put it on pretty thick, lol.. After you spray you bake it for 30min and then I sanded the raised letters with a medium grade sanding sponge from home depot..

I recommmend taping off the areas where hoses, spark plug boots, and filler cap are.. That stuff is tough and will not help the seal..

Ive been thinking of painting the "E" green... lol.. Just because... I may do it in a nail polish to keep it simple, just to see if I like it...
