Yours is true rocker cover and can be painted.

The one in this thread is just the plastic engine cover, a rocker cover cover if you will!

with my engine cover (above) i just washed it, sanded it down. Primed it several layers. Slightly sanded it. Then left to dry for a few hours before putting on several layers of glacier white spray paint. Let that harden. Then some lacquer, and another coat of paint then more laquer. Theres prob better ways. I'm not one for sanding it down constantly to get a perfect smooth finish. The finish i've got is good enuf 4 me.
