palm sander and 5 sheets of 400 something grit. I just took my time so I wouldnt have to primer it, just sanded it slowly and smoothly. And the center spark plug cover is a secret of mine, along with the oil cap

I don't see any secrets in here. Looks like it's smoothed, just like my larger TSX spark cover, which is painted body color. :confused: Your oil cap is just sanded down and looks like a pain in the ass to open now.

But its not. notice on mine, the spark plug cover is recessed into the VC, not covering the area. And the Oil cap is easier to open then stock, but requires thought to do so :wink:
