So I finally received my PML diff cover. Long frustration and battle with Moe's Performance. This is the as cast version of the diff cover. Anyway, I went to a place named Painters Supply. I took my paint code of my truck to them, Red Brawn. They mixed up a half pint and filled an aersol can full for me. Bought some red oxide primer, recommended by painters supply, got home and started painting the cover. So far it came out awesome! I love it. Looks much better in person than these pics. I am waiting an hour and then Im going to put a couple coats of clear on it. Then I'll install it tomorrow evening. Here are some pics....

I had no idea you could get a custom spray can done locally! The cover looks really nice too. I run a Black Stillen on mine, but I've got to say that Red is awesome.

Looks great! Never seen one body matched. I'm off for some primer to paint my new PML Trans Pan and my new Water Pump. Won;t be body matched, but they are going to get painted. This thread convinced me to not leave them bare. :)

Thanks guys! I really like how it came out. It looks really good in person and in the daylight. I still have enough paint left in the can. Ill have to take it back to them to fill another aersol can. So i may take the front off and sand the stock one down to bare metal. Then primer and paint it. I need to change the front gear oil anyway. :)

That looks really good, nice job.

May have to look into getting a new cover.

Looks good and love the attention to detail. I may have kept the tops of the fins silver for a little contrast.

sanding block would do that, and then use a dremel polishing tip to get it smooth and shiny... Awesome idea... ;)
