LCI's and painted my engine cover.



Painting the engine cover was super easy and made cutouts for the BMW Power. I think it came out not to bad for something i really didn't put time in.

Are you going to change the emblem? Doesn't match anything.

I think it turned out good, too. What kind of paint did you use?

I guess when I get red overlays... But maybe I like things to not match

I used VHT high temp paint. Just scuffed if up so the paint would stick

I think the emblem looks great, adds your own unique style and compliments the paint.

I think a black/white emblem would match it better.

Like just take the emblem off? I would look silly and you would see that something is missing? Don't you think? Or are you suggesting something else? And thanks

Yea that's what I was thinking. I like the contrast. Honestly I think im going to remove the red off the hoot and the trunk. I like the contrast of the Radom blue in there. Plus the BMW blue is known for the badge. It looked kind if generic with the red on it.

Looks good. Yeah maybe a different color emblem would be better. Also you should put black vinyl in the indents of the rear bumper like this.
