    I noticed the replica engine cover. Just a little tip that I used. Go to HomeDepot and buy some "Hand Hammered Aluminum Paint" . It goes on nice and gives a textured look. Most people have to touch the cover and they still think it is real aluminum. I'm not kinding.
    I had a question from a body shop painter, "why don't you polish that aluminum it would look so much nicer?"

    After painting it I had a girl in one of my classes paint the text with red nail polish. It looks awesome.

    I bought some latex aluminum spray paint at home depot one time. $1.99 a can...

    what I used was LATEX. so it wouldnt be a good idea to paint an engine with this...

    but anyway...I painted a PVC pole for a trot-line on my skiff and a friend of mine said "why didnt you just use pvc?"

    its funny how paint can deceive your eyes. so I'd take Jim's suggestion with the hand hammered style paint.

    thanks Jim ...good tip ...I haven't even had the time to open the main box with all the parts in it I was amazed at the size of the box ..it must be 5ftx3ftx2ft..it doesn't even contain the cover just all the parts ...probably add another month to the build ...lol...john
