    New to the forum, just wanted some design ideas for the engine cover on my 2.0 tdi! Was thinking of sticker bombing the outside silver edge with a different colour centre... But not to sure!
    thanks

    Welcome to the site.

    But, why would you bother as bonnet is shut all the time.

    Cal feel your boots fella, just a POV, but what would be the point if its shut all the time & tbh with the heat in that bay, most labels will peel over time anyway.

    Good point.

    I've seen painted covers and some look OK but stickers don't go to well in engine bays,even away from hot areas like the engine cover.

    Black looks good.
