    Can't wait to see it. My car decided he'd prefer the debadged engine cover and dispensed with the rings before he sought permission. he just does what he wants sometimes.

    Sorry to jump in but are these items simply laid over with carbon or have they had moulds taken and new parts made from carbon.?
    Either way they look very good.....

    Cheers lad :D
    HAHA quality pal :)

    Well I knew it would be a kind of risk but my has it paid off!!! The lad from FITS Performance who did it has made such a good job the detail round the lettering and badge is sweet, rather than having him go round it I asked him to cover it :) all for £35 aswell!!!

    That does look really slick! I've never been interested in cosmetics under the bonnet before (because no one ever sees it), but I'm tempted after seeing these results...

    What did it cost all in to have all the parts covered including P&P etc Danny?

    Yeah the carbon dipping is really sweet and these lads are real good at the job!

    I was the same then i got these engine covers and decided to do something different, so when i start having the bonnet up at shows its something different to look at rather than chrome pipes all over place :)

    The prices you will have to contact the carbon dipping lads or the flocking guy and they can tailor you a price to your needs :)

    Looks nice but cant see that engine cover looking good for more than a day with winter on its way and I wouldnt want to check your oil level either... are you only planning to fit it when you have it on show?

    Now I just need to find that thread with the part number for the 'extra' engine covers... I'm thinking a gold/carbon under-bonnet theme, do the water dipping guys do metalic gold?
