Haven't done a backyard LPG install by any chance, and forgotten to move the rocker cover (rearward) vent hose to the airbox?

I've heard of rocker covers going bang and putting a nice little dint in the bonnet because of this little hickup.

I got an EL rocker cover but it looks s**t,

How would I go about painting it?

As in how do I paint it? I never painted anything carwise before.

I know all about the EA-ED rocker covers being weak. I took a tyre iron to the old one from my project car last week.

I came out in better shape than it did.
