That was my wifes first response. Isn't it going to catch on fire? We'll see how it goes.I think the first thing get messed up is the stiching. I figured it will prably get full of dirt and not clean well. Then again it's my weekend car so it should last for a while.

I love everyone's work! I am inspired to do my engine cover now! Something with white and black and/or maybe some metallic shimmer (there's a Krylon fusion color called Nickel Shimmer). And we're thinking of adding subtle striping to match what we did on the exterior. Can't wait to get started!

That's exactly what I want to do, perhaps without the thin stripes in the middle. The blue looks lighter than the car in the pics, is that IBM paint or just something similar? How much did it cost you to get it done?

It actually matches really well, I bought the Dupli-Color GM IBM and Silver Metallic from Advanced Auto. The glare from the sun was difficult to deal with when taking the pics which is why it looks a little off. I think it was right around 20 bones for the paint and paint adhesive.

Just thought I'd share. I'm really loving this and now, now to add some bling to the underhood to bring it all out and tie it together.
Sorry about the picture quality, using my Blackberry Tour on this.
