ok so after i cover everything else...

i plan to repaint my engine bay, lid, low lid, all that good stuff.

i need some quality spray can paint that wont look like complete crap

i will get some degreaser to splash on everything, sand it down with 200 then 400 grit then get some heavy primer and filler

but what would be good to use? I want black and not the 96 cent special from walmart

For the plastics you will need adhesion promoter... i suggest the Bulldog brand from Oreilly. then use a good filler primer (2 in 1) such as Transtar, SEM, or bulldog. lastly decide on a paint that will look nice... Rustoleum enamels and Krylon Acrylic enamels look good and have a nice sleep shine to them but everyone has their own preference... but the adhesion promoter and 2 in 1 primer are a must or all the work you did is for nothing
