actually the cover got stuck on a we weeks ago when i was doing work... int he process of getting it off I bent 2 of the studs that hold it down so it wont go back on. Besides, i like how it looks better without it. The car actually runs cooler without it. there is too much foam padding on the back of it.Chuck C said:holy shit, you washed the engine cover off! or was that dirt all along?!
