<bump for you>
did almost the exact same thing only didnt use krylon or bake or leave dry for 12 hours.
when I was polishing I used a bit for my demel and I guess I had too much caffeine because I kept slipping off the letters and going right through the tape on the sides that's why there are the random silver spots :[
it's been running fine for 1 week now with no over heating or smoke :]
hey, so not to thread jack or anything but i thought u might know, i dont want to strip and repaint my valve cover (its a jdm itr one, would like to just clean it if possible) so im wondering what i can do to clean it up? i discovered wd-40 actually cleaned the black grease crap off of the plug wires, so wondering what i can do to clean up the valve cover. thanks.
