You will need 600 wet or dry sand paper, Dupli-colour Engine Paint (whatever colour you choose) and the clear coat.



Step 1: Remove the cover. I also removed the felt underneath the cover, along with all screws.



Step 2: Remove the Nissan logo. The logo is not attached with any adhesive, rather tiny clips; so it should be easy to reinstall back on :)



Step 3: Wash the cover using dish soap. Scrub off any dirt, rinse and repeat. Then I took the sand paper and started to sand it down. Rinsed it once, then re-sanded.



Step 4: Paint the cover. First two coats are light, followed by a third wet coat. Allow 10 minutes to dry after each coat. Fourth coat is the clear coat. The cover will be dry in one hour. After 3 hours it is okay to handle the cover and put it back.

Coat 2:


Coat 3:


After a clear coat:






*Once mine is fully dry, I will put it in the car and take more pics* :D

Close up after putting the logo back on. You can fold the tabs underneath the cover to secure it. Also be sure to put the felt like piece back on.



And it's in :D



Look at the shine :woot:
