Spray Paint Engine Plastic Cover

Recommended Posts

On my 2016 Edge Titanium 2.0L EcoBoost I’m thinking to spay paint the engine plastic cover, the one which sits at the top of the engine block and has access for the oil dip stick / oil fill. I noticed this cover is easily removable

 

Has anyone done this?

 

Good idea?

 

It’s all about the looks and keeping things under the hood clean

Someone has!  Check out the photo below.  The owner says he used "regular automotive paint" whatever that might mean.  You'll also find some great examples on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=paint+foam+engine+cover

Wow...that’s really cool man, thanks for your time. And the Ford logo makes it look like an OEM job. The link you sent also is very useful, lots of ideas.

Not sure what the 2.0 cover is made of but the 2.7 cover is some sort of foam.  So a flexible bumper paint might be the way to go.
