    Pics of cut engine cover

    Here are some pics of my engine cover. I cut the middle part out, and painted it with plastic paint. I was supposed to post these pics a while back, but just found my camera cord to upload to my computer.

    Thanks, it probably took me 15 minutes to cut, then probably an hour and half to prep and paint. Post pics if you do it.

    Thanks for posting the pics. Looks even better in higher Res! I will definitely be doing this at some point.

    Maybe run a 'chrome door edge guard' down the cut part of the covers for a more finished look.
    You'd have to miter the ends and it would probably be tedious job to make it look right.
    And a two tone paint job. With the shape and angles of the covers, there would be many choices of two-tone.
    Just a thought.
    What did you use to cut it? good job.

    I thought about doing something to the edges, but I've been too busy and too lazy to finish it. I will probably just take it up to the paint shop for them to repaint it and give it a more professional look. I think the two tone would look nice. Thanks for the ideas.
