I love the painted carbon engine cover! I really like the one WCC has but thought it was too much CF in one swath, the paint solves it

Default Looks Great!

Impressive - how did the show go? Pictures? Now all you need to do is to start selling coordinated engine packages.

I would love to see a picture of your new bay at this angle:

Thanks
I will take a pic for you tomorrow

I am really liking the new look
I still have to paint the battery den cover I also have yet in Torch Red so I have the stainless one on still for a week or so

and here is the new look
THAT'S badass Dennis!

Looks great. Well done.
I am a firm believer in the K.I.S.S. (keep it simple, stupid) theory. I think, in the long run, people appreciate the look. I know several Corvette (and motorcycle) owners who throw every piece of chrome they can purchase at their vehicles, and to me, it's very distracting.
