Who does this on the forums?
I saw a painted spark plug cover with the lettering in a another color.
I wanted this done.

I PMed blkturbo! but got no response from him.
I thought he did it, but maybe not.

Thanks guys.

any bodyshop can do it if you wanted done right or you can do it yourself it's a no brainer with some spray cans if you feel like doing it

nah rather not do it by spray can style.
I've seen some real nice ones on the forums.
I knew some ppl did it.
Just looking to see if anyone still does.

take it to ANY body shop. theyl coat it with plastic primer, the color you want, then a clear coat. itl cost about 150$ and come with a warranty for show car quality and high temp clear coat. cheaper shops could probably even do a decent job for like 80$.

When I had mine done I had the twin turbo shaved off and just left the Toyota emblem and 2jz-gte on there so one day when I'm single it won't say twin on the spark plug cover.

wait i don't get it....you don't use any chemical such as acetone on the Q-Tip to take the spray can paint off?

94ttt, did you even prep it?
reguardless how you prep, using scotch pad with prep paste or sanding with 320-400 grit sandpaper, the chrome paint will come off in the prepping process, I actually do both, plus I use a special pen that has thousands of glass strands and use it on and around letters and tight crevices, so sounds to me there was no prep work,

yes i preped it i used a scotch bright pad and went real easy over the lettering, then i wiped it down with wax and grease remover, then i sprayed it with bulldog, a adhesion promoter and flex adgent. Then i sprayed the cooler and used a Q-tip dipped in the reducer for the paint and rub off the the paint from the letters. After drying i layed the clear. This was not done with a spray can.
