OK, I didn't like the look of the black covers with all the new aluminum under the hood.
Alum covers are around 500 bones!
So I decided to paint them :banana:

Check it out, and let me know what Ya'll think :)

there's plenty of stuff above them, that's why I went with a lighter color blue.

Put some color in there!
Sorry, it's not "MOONLIGHT Blue" :p
