Hi John, I used a gun. Acrylic paint with reducer and hardener from NY Marine.
My paint job reflects my title of the thread.lol. I plan on doing one more shot after I know I don't have to fix anything. Tape off, scuff and paint.
I did use a acrylic rattle can from NY Marine. For the motor. It was very easy to use and paint. I think rattle cans have come a long way, dependability will find out.

John, I popped off the cover to my electric choke to fix the insulation on The Wire. How did you end up fixing your wire?
