JDM Engine Cover - PICS!

It took almost two months to get these, since they're specially ordered and shipped by boat from japan, but it was worth the wait. I got them from http://www.myautofashion.com/ .. good people to deal with.

I can't believe I'm hearing this from the guy who spent $720 on some IPT engine covers and then turned around and put them up for sale for $500 shortly thereafter. rolleyes

To address those who asked why I didn't paint the stock ones: I've seen too many cracking, peeling, flaking, mismatched color, amateur painted engine covers - no thanks.

Sure, it costs more to have nice things, but such is life. If everyone here was really so concerned with price, we'd all be driving kias. laughsilly

Last, yes it is a decal that says "CELICA."

Bottom line, I'm very happy with them. thumbsup

I painted mine a long time ago, they still look nice.

Most people use the wrong kind of paint, you need to use krylon for plastic unless you primer.

Engine paint won't work spineyes

I think they look nice, and if you enjoy them, then the $180 was well spent.

Plus, if you can't paint, then don't bother spineyes

Engine enamel is VERY hard to work with.

Ever try getting it off after a mistake?

I had to use brake parts cleaner and a hose spineyes

edit: You also didn't paint the fuse covers, engine enamel pools up in that dent like a motha, and it's impossible to move around frown

You ain't kiddin' laughsilly but myautofashion.com was great with communication and they only charged me a 50% deposit to start. I didn't pay the other half until they were actually shipped from them directly to me via fedex, with tracking number (after arriving from japan).
