Default Custom Green and Gold Engine Cover (5 640x480 shots)

Here'* the finished product from my engine cover. I'm not totally happy with it and I'm pretty sure I'll be making a new one later this year, but Iall in all its still pretty darn nice if I do say so myself. Many thanks to Willwren and Peterg22000. I love what they did with thier cover and I wanted mine to emulate a design I thought rocked.

Who inspired who? I did mine nearly 3 years ago, and 2 others for members since then. :P

Just paint the cover to the left to match.

Jdq, you'll have a very hard time using steel for that. We use aluminum mesh so it'* easier to shape.
