Here's mine. I'm in the process of changing out the hardware for true chrome, no covers. I managed to find metric grade 8.8 chrome acorn nuts for the front struts. I got the chrome strut covers from Moss Auto. I'm going to send my hood prop and fuel rail out to be chromed as well. The valve covers will be powder coated hopefully this winter. I'm also going to install an S&B cold air kit. I'm not really into billet covers. If it's a plastic cap, so be it. If it's metal, I'd like it chromed or powder coated. Braided hoses would be nice.

OK, so I've added a few things to it. Check my Profile - too many to list here.

I used this to cover hoses and other wires Bentley Harris Convoshield Chrome Corrugated tubing

I had the radiator cover painted along with my Cali Dream hood. A local dealer did it. My son and my Bro in law both had theirs done also and no problems for any of us. Thanks for the compliments.

Here is some on my GT500. The ABS TC lines by the air filter look pretty cool with the loom.

According to the Midwest Auto website, they're going to be producing painted radiator covers soon as well as battery boxes.

Interesting on the radiator covers. Just don't see how they can make them and paint them for less than just painting the stock one. I didn't use Midwest for the loom because they didn't have chrome as I recall. I do have their plenum cover on my LL that was flamed by Hireman.

Scramblr - looks great! -- how about the new Midwest Auto Gear shock tower covers: http://www.midwestautogear.com/index...d=41&Itemid=83

I'm back - 2001 Cobra convertible, 84K miles, acquired 12/10/11; just beginning to figure out what it needs to be right (beyond the leaky top..) - top to be done 12/27. Changed the coolant, <acronym title="transmission">trans</acronym>. fluid, oil, differential fluid. Replaced the LF wheel hub assy. Ordered a pair of Blisteins for the rear. Next up: full-length subs, strut brace, stainless brake hoses F&R and a bunch of FatMat.

Thanks Meatball!! Yeah, I just saw those covers the other day. Not sure about them yet. I think I'd like to see some "real world" photos on someone's car first. Plus I need to see how easy they come on and off as I have Tokico D-Specs and I need to get to the top of the strut to adjust them.
