Had stryker custom paint my engine cover. I'll let the pictures do the talking. One thing that doesn't show up very well though is the effect around the V emblems that makes them appear to be glowing hot from the flames. Nice touch.

AMES - Thanks for the contact info. He did a great job!

If you send him yours it's about $250 plus shipping to him. I bought another forum members and had him ship it to the painter so I would still have my original. So all told it cost me $300. It's worth EVERY penny.

Quality and execution actually exceeded my expectations. I knew we'd have trouble dealing with the recessed "Crest and Wreath" so we decided to just tape it off and leave it. I knew that portion of the engine cover would stand out, I just didn't know how it would look. I'm very happy with the results.

I'm not usually one for "bling" mods, but that seems like one of the best bling for your buck mods that you can make (no offense meant to the other engine cover vendors). Third request for painter info and installed photos.


Now let's start the debate on "rejex" versus "wax" :lildevil:


Enjoy.
