Looks great! Thinking of buying one myself just to give the engine compartment some class!

I musta missed it and that's what I call going above and beyond;very nice work and wouldn't mind eventually getting one for my SE and doing something similar with the two tone look. Once again good job.

Looks great! Is that OEM paint or did you try and paint match?

Truth be told I just used plain old grey Tremclad Primer, then three solid coats of gloss white Tremclad and then three light coats of Tremclad clear coat.


As far as cleaning Tbone... I don't mind....my baby gets regular baths..... my entire neighbourhood is under construction.

Well worth the time.

Thanks guys, just wanted to make sure myself. I just hand tightened the nut, didn't want to over tighten - a small nib of thread is visible above top of nut.

Wow great looking covers guys. I'd love to do a red one to match my Red Candy. Looks like another project to add to the long list this year...
