my paint holds up well on the engine cover. On the fuse panel though mine started to bubble up. i should have put some high temp primer on first. or i did not let it cure long enough. yours looks good by the way!

Just a suggestion. If you plan to take it on the track, 1/4, road course, or oval, better off to remove it to be safe. Mine is painted & graphics hydro-dipped. No issues but 1. I don't want to mess up the cover & 2. It traps unwanted heat under the cover. Both of your cars look bad ass by the way.....

Wouldn't hurt if left on trips. Just traps heat. I do occasionally raise hood on stops to let heat out & do a quick check on everything. I just installed jba ignition cables....

Took about 15 minutes. Driver side is easy. Back corner passenger side is a bear to get to....

$85. Bought from Phastek.com. Quick little upgrade. Still had stock cables on & wanted some a bit thicker.

I agree, looks good. Lines look good flowing from headlights thru the heritage grill....

Ok. Replaced my havoc spoiler with the GM dovetail. Had a lot of fitment issues, paint splitting....with the havoc.
Not to hard to install but said a few hail mary's prior to drilling...lol

Anxiety started with center punch, eased a bit with pilot holes but that 5/8 hole turned my stomach. Reminded me of the halo rings.. all good...That top bolt is a bi@ch to get too, worse than taking front bumber off.....
