Just thought I spice up the engine bay a lil bit so I painted the vararam, fuse box cover, and washer fluid cap.

Looking good man! However the Vararam intake is gonna get scrapped up from the rubber boot things that are the underside of the hood scoops. If you think removing them will help it won't the intake will still get marks from the hood. Trust me I know I painted mine and the paint got rub marks from the rubber scoop plugs and now the paint is just gone where they touch.

I used the GM spray touch up paint that you can get from the dealer and then hit it with clear coat. Looked awesome till I closed the hood the first time and then when I opened it again I got depressed. But at least mine is black so its not THAT noticeable.
