Painting an AEV heat reduction hood

I just bought an AEV heat reduction hood that is e-coated and ready for paint. I plan to paint it myself to save some $$$$$. Any tips on the process? Of course I am going to wait a few weeks til it gets warmer outside. Too cold to do it now.

If you are matching the paint on the Jeep it may be hard to match unless you are very skilled at auto painting.Have the righ tools. Most people it is far cheeper to have it done by the time you have the tools a spry booth etc... Just a tip be sure prep that E coat.

I am not skilled myself but I will be doing it with my girls dad who is very skilled. He has a spray booth with all the necessary equipment and we are matching it
