nice, looks good
yeah my buddy got that jdm cover and we're gonna be doing that. the easiest way to not get paint on places you dont want, is put petrollium jelly on it thats what i did with my cover in the black with orange letters. i painted it orange first..let it dry, then put vasoline on it then spray painted it all black..let that dry then wiped off the vasoline and then clear coated the whole thing. and it turned out great
