    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 :)

    Thanks everyone :) :)




    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
