Default Custom engine cover

Willrens engine cover has inspired me to do something similar to my 3800 sc 2 cover. looking around on club gp I found a couple examples I like. Tell me what one you guys like the best.








I like the second and the last the best. I'm getting my tonsels taking out in 3 weeks and have taken 2 weeks off of work. This could be a nice little project for me. I think I'm going to make something like this. haven't decided what color sticker inlays I'll get. engine bay is color-less right now. What ever I choose matching wires will be coming

Your choices would be mine too. To give credit where it'* due, that'* where I got my inspiration from, too. I was probably just one of the first to try this with a Series I cover. I've done one SC and 2 NA now.

So that it'* understood this is posted in the right forum, it should be noted that with the Series I M62, it does make an 8-10 difference in nosedrive temps.

The only pic I can see is the last one. The other ones are the red x'*.

They must have changed the cover for the 00+?

I was looking around on club GP after reading Wilrens post and found a guy named COPGTP and this is his site http://www.ccp.theblackstar.com Looks like they will make these engine covers for sale, just no prices. Might give them a call, but I could make something like this with 2-weeks off work.

I did mine in 3 hours, and 2 NA engine covers for Series I in 2 hours each. It'* not as hard as it looks.

debating If I should re-paint the cover black or a shade of gray. I guess I should see what color hi-temp paint I can get my hands on.
