    Yea, it would be nice for someone to use it to just to show the car, but install the original to drive it.

    Looks very nice when it's done and if you never drove the car it'd be fine.
    Codewise: Where in Upstste Ny are you? Well I see your upset with your painted engine covers, but preperation is the key to getting the job done right. Most shops and I hate to say this don't take the time to remove all the mold release agent off the surface before painting the plastic piece's, then the adhesion fails and the customer is pissed. It is a long process. I have done many plastic piece's in my 25 years of paint and body work with great sucess. I am going to PM you.
