Okay, I finally got the paint to come in. It's not perfect. You can see where the mod began, but you can't really tell from more than 4 feet away.

I had to make the center opening a little bigger than what I started with. It now runs at a very consistent 195F-200F on the highway. She gets a little warm when in a traffic jam or heavy city traffic, but with my manual fan override switch, it hasn't been a problem. I'll start cooling it down when it creeps past 210, so the fan never has a chance to automatically kick on at around 226F.
