    I did this in winter on my FJ cam cover but its actually came out a bit too wrinkled with the heat gun.

    Later on during a warm sunny day though, i painted the intake manifold outside in the sun and it came out perfect

    I used to paint these a lot, if you let the cover sit in the sun to warm up before painting, then hit it with the heat gun it will be decent, make sure your coats are even, and defiantly wait the 5 mins between coats, the more you heat/dry it with the heat gun the tighter the wrinkle will be

    Cleaned up the intake and it hit with a few coats and dried with heat gun. Ignore top corner still wet. Will let it sit in the sun tomorrow

    Also snagged a 6x ls3 coils on a stainless holder and loom for $200. Very happy

    Guy I bought the turbo from also had a xf TPS, so that's in the mail

    Best way to set this shit it to blow the heat gun down the ports etc of manifold and heat it up till it's to hot to touch, it will take 2 days drying it in the sun, shit seems to form a skin that seems dry then if you touch it it'll move cause its not dry on item surface
