I found it easier to just paint the whole thing at once and then when it was completely dry, just used a sanding block on the lines and BMW lettering, worked perfectly, and if you use a 400 or higher grit it gives it a nice brushed aluminium look.

Well for $20.00 American I thought it was well worth it and yes the gasket was $24.00 from Budds

Wow, that's a great price. It's not worth doing it yourself if you can get it for $20, if you factor in the cleaning products, paint and time. Great find.
