Looks great! You don't see much engine cosmetic stuff done with the V, at least on here. In the Corvette community, it's abundant. Here was mine on my Z06:

An Introduction To Hydrographic Printing

Hydrographic printing is known by several names. It is also called water transfer printing, cubic printing and fluid imaging. This new printing technology is based on a water-soluble film, upon which printed patterns of ink are applied. This film base dissolves in the water, leaving the ink behind. The ink then adheres to any item dipped into it.

Yeah, it's cool!





Who Uses Hydrographic Printing?

Hydrographic printing is used by printers all over the world. These printers print patterns on items ranging from entire ATV's to duck calls. Items that are commonly printed include sporting equipment, automotive trims and electronics products. Items made of plastic, metal, glass and many other materials and of many shapes can be successfully printed using this method.



What are the patterns for Hydrographic Printing?

There are innumerable patterns that can be applied using the hydrographic printing process. All of the patterns are created by filmmakers specializing in preparing these films. Some patterns are copyrighted: to use these, the printer must pay an additional fee. You can even design your own pattern, although there is significant effort and cost in this endeavor.

The awesome thing is that Oregon Hydrographics is right here in my hometown of Eugene. That's it, I'm getting my center console and engine cover done with that darker faux CF. That is, unless anyone else can think of a cool design or pattern to put on the center console?

yes, you need to be a vendor before any money changes hands. But I would think there is some money to be made here, as there are no other vendors here offering this service. once you are a vendor, you can have a big ass ad in your signature for all to see.

Eddie is a long time trusted friend. He has a truck like mine...but mine is much faster...until he gets his engine in...

This is a guy that only does things the right way...his wife Dawn demands perfection...

I hope he becomes a vendor here we will all benefit.
