Anyone done this? What paint is good? What type did you use (primer, sanding, paint, ect.) How difficult is it? And would a grey exterior look nice with a dark blue engine bay?

If you look at the super duper uber sticky thread at the top of the exterior mods list, the instructions are right there.
I would only do a dark blue if you have dark blue inside your car or on the outside.

Are you talking about panting the plastic [censored] like the battery box and fuse cover, or the actual engine bay such as the strut towers and radiator suport?

just like the battery box, fuse cover, windsheild wiper fluid cover, stuff like that, I would never try to do the towers and stuff like that, that's too much dissasembaling(sp)

I have a CD Silver ZX3 and my valve cover is powdercoated 'Ford blue' IMO it looks great considering I also have Taylor plug wires and the couplers on my short ram are the same color. It's a nice contrast.
