Thanks guys......i used duplicolor GM black spray paint to paint the entire cover with duplicolor clearcoat also. For the raised lettering I used some plastic paint from a hobby shop with a very small paint brush. It was pretty easy but took some time to finish. I also sprayed some clearcoat over the lettering to protect it.

Nice! Can't wait for the warmer weather to start spraying my diagonal braces, STB, and engine cover!
