    My latest mod. I had the engine cover painted. I now have the K & N and Borla exhaust installed. Not sure what I may do next?? Undecided on a tuner or not. No need to race any one here.....

    Very cool. I have been wanting to do something like this. I personally was thinking red and black accents.

    Did you do it yourself? Sent out?

    Nice that will work. We almost went primarily red but thought it might be too much red. But you have to go with what you like. It did get a lot of attention at a car show this weekend.

    I did not do it my self. I had it painted, It is a gloss finish and he did a color code match. I found the clip art on line and he had his Vinyl sticker guy do these for me. So those are vinyl stickers on paint. The good thing about that is I can change those if I want to....

    Cool, I like the idea of the decal. Wonder how it will last with the heat.

    I was thinking Black where you have red.
    Then Red where you have white.

    That would look good!
    I thought about that. I don't drive too often but I marked the mileage and I will see when it starts to show signs. I can always have a graphic painted on if I had to.

    I like the idea of the decal/graphic.

    Yes I did, I had a local auto body shop paint it for me. Will see how long the graphics hold......

    Were you without the cover for long? (This is my daily driver hence why I ask).

    Very nice job! And don't worry about the paint. I had Guy Shively well known pinstriper in this area do my work under the hood on my former SRT. He told me the paint will hold up very well, not to worry about it. Although the life of the paint under the hood could depend on the type of paint used. Guys' job held up like brand new for over 4 years when I traded it in.

    Yes he did take a long time but that was due to a shop re-location and it took time to break down his paint booth and re-wire it. They were in the process of moving to a bigger shop.

    That's the only reason it took so long but It does not matter. You can just drop the covers off just remove everything and drive it with out covers as long as you don't wet anything under the hood.
