That's a tough one. I used Krylon Fusion on the fender flares and with it being parked outside, I've had to re-apply about every 8-12 months. That's black paint under the sun glare. You might be better off with a glossy engine type paint, but who knows if that would stick to plastic. Anyone else have an idea on this??

i would feel kind of iffy on using the paint on the engine cover.
like it was said above, i would get some high temp paint.
id also prep the cover before paint too (wash, scuff etc..)
