Default My painting adventure and then some(2006 Civic Si)

I'm doing quite a few re-fresh type things to my Car to make things look much better. Also repairing a few things that need done.

First off I am repainting my trim in the engine bay is its gotten quite dull and faded. While going through Lowe's I found some Rustoleum Trim and bumper paint that I thought would look really good so I figured I would try some.

Sorry I didn't take any before pics but in a couple pics you can see what my cowl looks like and that's very similar to what my trim was looking like.

Here is a little low down as to what I did (no pics of steps, followed same routine for other paint projects later on in this post)

1) After removing the parts from the car I washed them off and made sure to use some de-greaser to get them really clean.
2) Once clean I made sure to scuff, with 320 grit sand paper, the smoother plastic so the primer could have a good hold onto the plastic.
3) After that I made sure to wash the part again.
4) Then once clean I started to lay down some primer (did 2 light coats along with 1 light/med coat). The primer I used was VHT Engine Enamel light gray. For the base coat I used, as stated above, Rustoleum trim and bumper paint (2 light followed by 1 light/med), and I also added a clear coat for protection as well. I used VHT Engine Enamel Gloss Clear

Here is what I'm talking about with my cowl:




Here are some shots of my plastic trim. As you can see I also did my intake manifold cover as well. Stock color is color matched to the car. I was ready for a different look and came across this color on 8th Civic and thought it would look really nice. I used VHT Rocket Red High Temp Engine & Drivetrain coating for the base coat. Also has clear on it. The Hondata sticker is under the clear coat as well:
