Custome Engine cover for MK3

Any companies thinking of doing an engine cover, similar to the one off Steeda or FSWerks, for the MK3 seeing as Ford was kind enough to remove from the current line? If I'm going to spend money, I would like one made of aluminum or CF for the money. A metal or CF reproduction of the OEM cover would be very nice! If there is interest, chime in so the folks in the know will know we want one.

Im sure they will make something eventually. But in the meantime you can still purchase OEM ford engine cover for fairly cheap.

Yes I know, but I don't want to blow $60 on a "plastic" cover. Would rather put it towards something nicer.

I'm hoping if they make one, they'll add them to their product line up. Wish I knew someone with a ST, they could make one for them too.

I went and talked to Jeremy at s2Carbonworks. He said we would need a minimum order of 8 units and he can anodize or powder coat them. The final price will be around $65, same as the plastic OEM piece. He can even do a logo on them like Focus. I'm taking my car to him tomorrow so he can take measurements for the holes for the oil filler and dipstick. Here are some examples:

Here's a link to the website,http://www.s2carbonworks.com/s2carbonworks.html, where you can see more examples of their work. He was also going to look at other items on my car for ideas of other things they might do, so if you have ideas or requests for custom pieces, let me know and I'll pass it along to Jeremy.
Let me know if you are interested.
