    not really my taste .... just 'tooooo' silver!
    with those oil caps etc the contrast of the black plastic looks better IMO

    Hey there Jim, the covers don't look too bad at all, just need the right colour. Do u know if your friend can paint them mat black?? or even some sort of shiny black?

    I've just had mine colour coded so i'll get some pics up soon. You can use normal car paint it's the prep and primer that makes the paint not blister and flake off.
