Looks great Gary. Thanks for the pics.

I hope to do the same thing soon.

Did you use a pen for the intake lettering? Great Look!

What I have done to the engine bay on my 2004 GT is very close to the same type of "engine face-lift" that I did on my former 2003 Inferno Red GT. Of course, the colors used were selected to match the Seamist Green paint and medium blue/light blue/medium purple flames and pin-stripes.

What I used and answers to other questions can be found at the following thread:

http://www.ptcruiserlinks.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2719&SearchTerms=My,turbo,engin e,gets,a,"face,lift"

On this car I used a blue Sharpie Permanent Marker pen to do the intake lettering. However, after application the color turned purple--a good match for the medium purple accent color on my flames/pinstripes. This has a great metallic shine as the engine intake silver shows through the marker ink. I applied several coats of ink over several weeks and I'm pleased with the results. Also, the other painted engine bay light blue/medium purple accents were done with a fine point DecoColor Opaque Paint Marker which can be purchased at any crafts store for around $3.25.

Are these paints flammable?

I have not experienced any heat-related issues with the paint or marker ink used in the engine bay area. The paint sticks to "almost anything" and appears to be impervious to the intensive heat generated by the turbo engine. Also, I used these in my former 2003 GT--driving in 90+ degree temperatures during the summer--no problems.
