Default Painted motor cowling

well, I did mine a few weeks ago and my buddies last night. I learned from my screw ups to make his look much nicer. I know some will say it is tacky but it is definitely better than boring black.
Mine- blue
Chucks - red

Did you just buy a new decal kit or were you able to reuse the old ones? I'm not a huge fan of the splatter paint but would like to paint a solid color. Great idea to get rid of that boring black color. What type of paint did you use? NICE NICE NICE

I like it! Gives the engines some dimension, and something to actually look at!
